Cover of the Summer 2024 issue of American Craft magazine

American Craft’s Summer 2024 issue is focused on the theme savor.

American Craft’s Summer 2024 issue is focused on the theme savor.

Craft can help us slow down and create a life filled with more gratitude and connectedness. Simply spending time appreciating the materials, labor, and creative vision that go into making handcrafted objects can usher in a sense of wonder. In this issue, take a moment to pause with our roundup of handcrafted benches, enjoy togetherness with mocktails or cocktails served in handcrafted glassware, take pleasure in the bounty of food with sculptural knives by Everett Noel, and delight in discovering local craft through the latest installment of The Scene: Craft in the Twin Cities.

We hope this issue, and the work featured within, will inspire you to find new ways to savor the world around you, the season of summer, and the elements of daily life.
