Synopsis: An engaging history and examination of the studio furniture movement, Speaking of Furniture: Conversations with 14 American Masters is an informative, firsthand presentation of the creative processes of 14 diverse and highly accomplished artisan furniture makers: James Krenov, Wendell Castle, Jere Osgood, Judy Kensley McKie, David Ebner, Richard Scott Newman, Hank Gilpin, Alphonse Mattia, John Dunnigan, Wendy Maruyama, James Schriber, Timothy S. Philbrick, Michael Hurwitz and Thomas Hucker. Through these insightful and wide-ranging interviews, each describes his or her evolution as a furniture maker and reveals a uniquely personal approach to a craft characterized by its delicate and vital balance of concept and functionality.
In his foreword, Edward S. Cooke, Jr., provides a succinct analysis of the American Studio Furniture movement and how the individuality of its practitioners contrasts with the constraints and task-specific demands of the traditional furniture trade. Author and furniture maker Roger Holmes offers an insider's perspective on the art and craft of producing exquisite contemporary furniture in his conversational Introduction and maintains that "art or craft, this is very personal work" while emphasizing "the fundamental connection between hand, mind, and the making of things." The extraordinary range of exquisite and eclectic works presented in Speaking of Furniture is a feast for the eyes and a testimony to the makers' professionalism and mastery of their craft.

About the Author: Based in East Hampton, New York, Pritam & Eames is associated with the finest work in American furniture making since 1981. As the country's oldest established gallery connected with the American studio furniture movement, they represent a distinguished group of artist-craftspeople. Edward S. Cooke, Jr. is the Charles F. Montgomery Professor of American Decorative Arts in the Department of the History of Art at Yale University. He has served as director of the Yale Center for the Study of American Art and Material Culture since 1992 and served as the Chair of the department from 2000 to 2006. Roger Holmes, author and furniture maker, manages a workshop in Lincoln, NE, where he combines traditional handwork and contemporary technology. Author of The Woodworker's Companion, he has been an editor for Fine Woodworking magazine and has written extensively on furniture and furniture making.
