Modern in the Making
Post-war Craft and Design in British Columbia
Daina Augaitis, Allan Collier, Michelle McGeough
By Daina Augaitis, Allan Collier and Michelle McGeough
About the BookFrom the aesthetics of postwar reconstruction to the functional objects that complemented 1950s West Coast Modern architecture and the expressive material forms of the 1960s and 70s, Modern in the Making will acknowledge the many dimensions that defined British Columbia’s cultural identity in the postwar era. It is the first volume to trace the evolution of Modern ceramics, weaving and fiber art, furniture, fashion and jewelry design produced between 1945 and 1975 in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.
