Summary
In this informative and spectacularly photographed volume, Mo Fini and Lucy Davies have drawn upon their extensive research into the traditional handicrafts of South America and the artisans who create them. Combining historical perspectives and cultural insights with descriptions of present-day techniques, the authors examine the full range of this vast area's indigenous arts and crafts: contemporary pottery inspired by ancient cultures, such as the Moche; jewelry and metal work in a multitude of forms; enduring textile traditions of the Wayuu, Aymara, and Kuna Indians; painting on clay, leather, and glass; wood carving and decoration of dried gourds; and other extraordinary crafts from around the continent. Full-color photography illustrates each of the crafts described, and a comprehensive reference section offers detailed advice on collecting and conserving these native treasures
