The craft&design Selected online gallery features the work of makers in a broad range of media. Whether they weave textiles, forge metal or carve wood, what they have in common is the creativity and skill required to create original, beautiful and desirable items by hand, and in a world where mass produced items are everywhere, these are qualities to be valued.
Many of the makers whose work is featured in these pages regularly create unique designs to commission. If you are interested in having an item made especially for you, contact a maker directly.
