Design Stories | The Studio Craft Movement

Posted on: Tuesday, June 26, 2007

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is currently showing One of a Kind: The Studio Craft Movement featuring curated craft pieces on view in the museum's Modern Architecture and Design Gallery now through September 3, 2007. 

'The studio craft movement developed in the United States during the post–World War II years. By the 1970s in both Europe and the United States, a shifting political climate and an "anything goes" art scene encouraged a new freedom of artistic expression.'

Select pieces from the exhibit include fiber works by Sheila Hicks and Norma Minkowitz and glazed earthenware by Tony Marsh.

Sheila Hicks, "Linen Lean-To" (1967-68), linen

Norma Minkowitz, "Boundary" (1989), fiber, paint, pencil, shellac

Tony Marsh, "Trilobed Vessel and Contents" (2002), glazed earthenware
