£12.99


A beautiful book to inspire us to look for inspiration in the everyday and use our hands to make something extraordinary.

Ruth Asawa (1926-2013) was an influential and award-winning sculptor, a beloved figure in the San Francisco Bay Area art world, and a devoted activist who advocated tirelessly for arts education.

This lushly illustrated book by collage artist Andrea D’Aquino brings Asawa’s creative journey to life, detailing the influence of her childhood in a farming family, and her education at Black Mountain College where she pursued an experimental course of education with leading avant-garde artists and thinkers such as Anni and Josef Albers, Buckminster Fuller, Merce Cunningham, and Robert Rauschenberg. Delightful and substantial, this engaging title for young art lovers includes a page of teaching tools for parents and educators.
