Batch; Craft, Design and Product by Andrew Tanner covers a hot new trend coming from international craft designers: making small batches of skillfully crafted work for large retail outlets. This is the cream of the contemporary craft world, crossing into most disciplines and mediums, including ceramics, textiles, wood, glass, precious metals, and metal work Detailing a glorious array of these handcrafted objects, the book is filled with information gathered from each maker, explaining the ideas and concepts behind their products, and how they got started and developed their work. The book also includes practical information on running a small craft business, such as connecting with manufacturers, dealing with press, sourcing commissions, conceptualizing packaging, and managing marketing. Also featured is a gallery and design-shop guide that will appeal to craft makers for both visual interest and practical information, and to craft buyers as a directory of the best contemporary work in the field.

This book explores the intersection of craft, design and sustainability in the developing world. It argues that most sustainable design approaches and efforts fall short of implementing holistic sustainability, and in order to reach this goal, design must be underpinned by alternatives to the mainstream, technology-intensive, industrial design paradigm. Renewable materials such as bamboo, cork and hemp – which are abundantly available in the developing world – have the potential to be a viable resource base for sustainable development. Current sustainable design initiatives and approaches already recontextualize these materials using industrial techniques and technologies. However, these efforts fall short of impacting holistic sustainability and tend to focus on the ecological aspect. This book offers the development of one alternative to design for holistic sustainability, called the Rhizome Approach, which draws on existing sustainability praxis and craft. Holistic Sustainability Through Craft-Design Collaboration includes customizable tools which aim to empower designers to guide and evaluate their own designs. Through these tools, and the Rhizome Approach in general, the book aims to enable designers, and students of design, to move beyond green and sustainable design, to holistic sustainability design.
