Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 068816501X, Hardcover)Nicholas Mosse is a successful ceramics artist whose work is sold all over the world from his County Kilkenny studio. Here he acknowledges the inspiration for his pleasing pottery: the understated and softly colorful style of the Irish countryside, which is a perfect foil for trendy flea-market accessories as well as for the classically simple lines of Shaker and Georgian furnishings.
Though this is a beautiful coffee-table volume, there's far more here than pretty pictures alone. Mosse approaches Irish style from the vantage point of a collector, emphasizing the fascinating history of the handcrafts of this region, like spongeware, linen and cotton woven textiles, quilts, and rustic furniture like the sugan chairs with straw seats that grace many an Irish pub. Attractive and reasonably simple examples of each craft are given as projects, though they are suitable mainly for those experienced with some basic techniques such as the transfer of template patterns, jigsaw cutting, and the like. --Barrie Trinkle
