Craft in America

This program, "Craft in America," has aired over the last two nights on PBS (at least here in the San Francisco Bay Area). Absolutely wonderful. It profiles a large number of artists in clay, wood, metal, glass, and fiber. Jewelry makers, ceramicists, wood turners. Craft artists of every ilk. All beautiful work. (How do they not worry about rent? What would I do with my life if I didn't have to worry about rent?)
Anyway, the DVD is being released this coming Tuesday*, June 5th, wherever such things are sold, with the companion book not being released until October 9, 2007.

*New DVDs, Cds, and books are now released on Tuesdays, except for Harry Potter stuff, which gets released when and how J.K Rowling wants it released. In the case of the next book, however, I think she completely missed the boat. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (book 7) is being released on July 21st, 2007. It should be released on (Duh!) 7/7/07.
