Malaysian crafts, like indigenous crafts around the world, are undergoing great change as the result of the phenomenal rise in domestic and international tourism on the demand side and as a result of globalization pressures on the supply side, The Changing Face of Malaysian Crafts aims to give a personal face to some of those changes that are taking place within Malaysia. The book has been carefully researched and carries a detailed biography. It commences with a comprehensive historical introduction. As each of the crafts is examined, it is evident that contemporary crafts often carry inspiration from traditions. Metal-ware, bead-work and gold-thread embroidery, ornamented textiles, fibre-ware and bamboo products, pottery, woodcarving, and recreation and ritual activities are explored in this context. Richly illustrated both in colour and in black and white, this book will be of special interest to those who wish to understand social continuities and change as depicted in the modern face of Malaysian crafts.
