            In Build Better Boxes, Matt Kenney distills and shares what he's learned in 20 years of box making using step-by-step photos that walk you through the process of creating 10 beautiful designs from scratch. You'll begin with a few simple, but elegant painted boxes that introduce f...undamental concepts like cutting miter joints and fitting a lid. Then you'll progress through several stunning projects that include tea cabinets and jewelry boxes-designs that show just how much you can do with a box. Along the way, you'll learn smart techniques for joinery like rabbets and dovetails, how to create box sides with grain that flows seamlessly around all four corners, to make your own veneers, and to apply finishes like milk paint and shellac. Throughout all of the projects, Kenney emphasizes good design and demonstrates several unique design elements that he's developed, like pulls wrapped in thread, fabric lined bottoms, and grouping individual boxes to create a single piece of furniture. Build Better Boxes, is more than a set of instructions for 10 boxes: In the course of building these designs, you will gain a thorough understanding of key woodworking and design concepts-like wood movement, grain selection, and proportions-that will help you design and make your own boxes.

            Celebrating the 120th anniversary of artist Len Lye (1901-1980), the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and the Len Lye Foundation co-publish the first collection of the artist's poetry. Introduced and selected by Len Lye Foundation trustee and University of Auckland Professor Emeritus,... Roger Horrocks, the 42 poems collected in Poems are an exciting glimpse into the literary world of Len Lye. Internationally recognised for his pioneering experimental films and boisterous kinetic sculpture, Lye's practice included painting, photography and the written word, a multimedia practice unified around the artist's declared dedication to movement as an artistic medium. As a schoolboy in Aotearoa, Lye considered poetry to be "a lot of romanticised junk," but after moving to London in 1926 he "woke up" to poetry. Lye befriended many famous poets of the day such as Norman Cameron, Dylan Thomas, Robert Graves, Laura Riding and Gertrude Stein. They encouraged him to write because they saw something very original in his quirky style of speech.

            You don't need to be a master potter to create stunning handmade ceramic tableware and decorations. Kara Leigh Ford, pro potter and founder of Kara's Pottery Club, teaches the basics with easy-to-follow steps and photos from her own studio. Her inviting instructions draw out the ...innate creativity in all of us, so all readers need are curiosity and a few key tools and materials to get started. Readers will love her unpretentious, can-do approach and her signature, modern meets earthy pottery style. The clay journey begins with handbuilding--no wheel needed! Readers will learn relaxing techniques to create projects like a charming slab mug, a hip coil planter and a textured pinch-pot teapot. With newfound clay confidence, readers can tackle wheelthrowing and present family and friends with stoneware bowls, dinner plates, bud vases and more. With an overview of glazing and an array of exciting decorating techniques, readers can develop their own personal style. Kara covers the basics on kilns and helps readers explore accessible options like firing their work at a local studio or sharing a community kiln. Once readers take their first pot out of the kiln, they'll be amazed by their beautiful, pro-quality creations.
