Readmore Inn a Vermont Bed and Breakfast Inn

Vermonters at their Craft

Author:  Catharine Wright and Nancy Means Wright
Date/Era:  1987
Room:  Mezzanine

This book is for all those interested in fine crafts: the maker, the admirer, the buyer, the professional, the amateur.

It is also for those who wish to escape the humdrum and the lead the creative life – or for those simply interested in how other people live and work.
The thirty craftspeople interviewed in this book are at the top of their fields. They work in clay, wood, glass, and metal. They are native Vermonters, or sixties transplants in search of a craft “dream.” They are collaborating partners, or independent artisans. Each of the thirty has a different story to tell, but they are united in one feature: Their work is in the tradition of old-time craftsmanship, joined with a fine art sensibility. It is often one of a kind, always memorable. $5
