Mark Brazier-Jones is a unique force in the world of design, whose wonderfully eccentric works literally defined the term 'Creative Salvage' in the mid-1980s. Today, his work is increasingly recognised as forging a new and more artistically compelling way forward. As a veritable 'designer-laureate of metal', his metalwork possesses a poetic sensibility and an engaging quirkiness that is suffused with symbolic meaning rarely found in contemporary design.

A sumptuously illustrated tome, Mark Brazier-Jones assesses his approach to design and making, and is an important catalogue raisonné of his work. By playfully subverting our notions of art, craft and design Brazier-Jones' surprisingly ecletic work offers an alternative definition of modern design - one that is about quality of craftsmanship and individuality of expression that is intended to last generations.
