Product description

Synopsis

Wire objects have been part of our everyday lives for centuries. This book shows how their beauty and decorative qualities are becoming appreciated. It reveals why there is such a strong revival of interest in these pieces and demonstrates how they can be integrated into our homes today.

From the Back Cover

Wire objects have worked their way into virtually every human activity. Since the eighteenth century, such occupations as housekeeping, cooking, gardening, fishing, and hunting were unthinkable without them. Shopkeepers fashioned wire into display racks, and children played with wire toys. Many pieces, such as fruit bowls, platters, and baskets of all kinds served both practical and decorative functions. With its vintage photographs, pages from early catalogs, old advertisements, and more than 300 evocative full-color photographs, Wire reveals why there is such a strong revival of interest in these pieces and demonstrates how they can be integrated into our homes today.
