This is a glamorous coffee table book covering the work of the international designer, maker and craftsperson. Batch showcases the cream of the contemporary craft world crossing different disciplines in design including; furniture, surface design and decoration, glass, ceramics, textiles, precious metals and multidiscipline design. Designers and craftspeople are pushing the boundaries and concept of craft, creating batches of work which emphasise the skill behind the object. These high-end craft objects are sold through design boutiques, galleries and department stores and they are produced by designers and makers successfully carving our lifestyle trends. In a retail environment where product design is becoming a cloned marketplace, Batch celebrates those products which have a story behind them and which have a high level of care and finish, which make them stand out in the crowd. The book presents the work through interviews with both national and international designers who explain the ideas and concepts behind their work, how they got started and how they have developed their businesses. The book also includes practical information in the 'Behind the Scenes' chapter on running a small business, liaising with manufacturers, dealing with press, setting up exhibitions, sourcing commissions and marketing. And when you are ready to start shopping, it also offers a shop guide compiled by the designers themselves. This book will not only appeal to makers for both visual interest and practical information but also to the buyers, collectors and admirers of contemporary craft and designers.
