Tanya Harrod

Tanya trained as an art historian. She is the author of the prize-winning The Crafts in Britain in the Twentieth Century (Yale University Press 1999). She has organised many exhibitions and contributes regularly to The Burlington Magazine, The Spectator, Crafts and The Times Literary Supplement. She is writing a biography of the potter Michael Cardew for Yale University Press and is researching a broadly-based study of the meaning of the handmade for Reaktion Books. Her current interests include the vernacular in relation to modernism, art education in sub-Saharan Africa in the colonial period, notions of wealth and poverty in early twentieth century Britain and the effect of the New Media on the applied arts. She is on the Advisory Panel of the Journal of Design History, of The Burlington Magazine and of Interpreting Ceramics. Harrod is Advisor to the Craft Lives Project based at the National Sound Archive of the British Library. With Glenn Adamson and Edward S Cooke she is the editor The Journal of Modern Craft.
