Curator's Note:

The Messages episode of Craft in America looks at ways craft artists go beyond skill to personal and political expression. They use craft to tell a story, prove a point, or bring attention to contemporary issues. Often the work is provocative.


Wisconsin glass artist Beth Lipman, New Mexico santero Charles M. Carrillo, Baltimore bead artist Joyce J. Scott, and New Orleans jewelry artist & sculptor Thomas Mann are featured in the Messages episode. This collection includes bonus clips of these artists and their work, as well as stories from curators and related artists.
