A note from the Editor:
The American movement is so heavily identified with wood: shingled bungalows, Mission oak, wainscots and beams. And as for the revival, interpretation of the woodwork of Greene and Greene is a movement all its own. Historians like to say that Arts and Crafts died during the Colonial Revival Twenties and was buried by the Depression, to be resurrected only with the renewed interest of collectors during the 1970s. I say that the movement didn’t die entirely during those years; it was kept alive by such fine-woodworkers as Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Tage Frid, James Krenov, and Sam Maloof, each exploring Nature + art + craft.

Long-time collectors of vintage American pottery and Navajo art found the right house for their collections. It was built as a winter haven for industrialist Edward Drummon Libbey (as in Libbey Owens-Corning). Bill and Kathy Couturie restored it in the 1990s.
Brian Coleman describes the resurgence of fine work bringing us fireplace tools, stove hoods, garden gates, and metal art tiles.
