This issue is all about thinking globally, and we're spotlighting a handful of international craft hubs: glass in Australia, textiles in India, furniture in Sweden, ceramics in Korea, metalsmithing in Mexico, and more. Plus, Tanya Aguiñiga shows how making things – and the things themselves – can help form community across barriers, and the nascent Climate Museum takes on our worldwide crisis.
