    Bibliographical note

    Author's note: This 6,000 word journal article has been published by the peer reviewed Journal of Visual Art Practice and is significant in its discussion that crosses of the boundaries between sculptural and craft practices. This is unusual, although there has now been some research undertaken in this area by the Henry Moore Foundation amongst others.
    To write this article there was significant research of both primary and secondary material from both the craft and the fine art sides of the debate. The pulling together of this material has been important in keeping a debate – that is normally only seen from single perspectives – open, and also for helping to give a platform for further debates.
