"Maps the rich and complex histories of a diverse array of objects to uncover why the post-war period engendered such exceptional design and craft practices in the region, as well as to explain their enduring cultural relevance."—Daina Augaitis, Interim Director, Vancouver Art Gallery

From the aesthetics of post-war reconstruction to the functional objects that complemented 1950s West Coast Modern architecture and the expressive material forms of the 1960s and 70s, Modern in the Making acknowledges the many dimensions that defined British Columbia’s cultural identity in the post-war era. It is the first volume to trace the evolution of Modern ceramics, weaving and fibre art, furniture, fashion and jewelry design produced between 1945 and 1975 in the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan.
