Fuller Craft Museum is a place where craft is explored by considering the materials, techniques, and artistic expression that challenge the perception of craft, while honoring the achievements of the past.
The collection of contemporary craft is rooted in functional objects dating back roughly to the end of World War II. Makers who work primarily with their hands in materials that are tactile and familiar (wood, metal, glass, ceramics, and fiber) stretch the boundaries of these functional everyday objects into the conceptual, the personal, and wildly imaginative studio craft scene.
