The Altered Object
Techniques, Projects, InspirationBook - 2006
Altered art is the fastest growing craft trend today--but its practitioners can't live by books alone: they long to expand their horizons and explore new directions. And this follow-up to the hugely successful Altered Art will fulfill their creative desires. It moves into uncharted territory, focusing not on books, but on transforming the surfaces of a multitude of everyday objects into artistic canvases. The 25 projects clearly prove that the possibilities are limited only by one's own imagination. For example, in the hands of five different crafters, those ubiquitous mint tins become a small shrine, necklace, photo book, and doll. Profusely illustrated profiles showcase ten contemporary artists doing their work; all provide invaluable insights into the creative process.
