DESCRIPTION

For generations craft has stood alongside design and fine arts, but not as part of these disciplines. RAM seeks to dispel any differentiation that may exist between fine arts and crafts. Craft media include ceramics, fibers, glass, metals, paper and wood along with related materials treated with techniques associated with these media. There is a physicality to craft media communicated by the tactile quality apparent in much of this work, and a love of process on the part of the artists.

RAM collects contemporary crafts from the mid-20th century and forward, documenting the time when artists began to employ craft media for the creation of both functional and sculptural artworks, which the museum values equally as long as both are created with an aesthetic purpose.
