Words from Woz
For this education-themed issue, we sought top-notch advice for creative students about to embark on their careers – and we found it. Read jewelry artist Keith Lewis’ interview with Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak for his take on grades, true success, and how to solve the creativity/career dilemma. You can also read Lewis’ conversation with jeweler Robert Lee Morris

The New UrbanGlass
In early October, Brooklyn’s UrbanGlass opened the doors at its newly expanded home in the former Strand Theatre after undergoing a two-year, $35 million renovation. American Craft’s editor in chief Monica Moses checked in with the organization’s new executive director, Cybele Maylone, to learn more about the renovation, what people can expect from the new space, and how Maylone became interested in the glass world.

Celebration Time
Earlier this year, the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, marked 20 years as a worldwide destination for woodworkers, from beginners to veterans. American Craft assistant editor Andrew Zoellner caught up with founder and executive director Peter Korn for a Q&A on the center. Elsewhere in the issue, read his review of Korn’s new book Why We Make Things and Why It Matters.

Warren Seelig: Reporting from South Korea
Fiber/mixed-media artist and ACC Fellow Warren Seelig was on hand for “Something Old, Something New,” the Cheongju International Craft Biennale in South Korea in September and October. Read his special dispatch from the event and learn more about the award winners, including Heechan Kim and Jiyoung Chung, who were recently profiled in American Craft. The eighth annual craft competition had nearly 1,200 participants from 55 countries. 

Ramping Up Resources
The library staff at the American Craft Council has been hard at work rounding up resources for craft enthusiasts. Want to know which schools have craft workshops and courses? What about a directory of museums that collect and exhibit contemporary craft? That’s just a smidgen of what’s available. Plus, check out a list of 10 must-see craft resources beyond the ACC Library.
