Hand Wrought: The Artistry of William Waldo Dodge
William Waldo Dodge, Jr. (1895-1971), architect and craftsman, was one of the leading figures in Asheville’s architectural scene as well as an illustrious and well-known silversmith. He was part of an important larger movement in Asheville that expressed the influences of the romantic and Arts and Crafts movements in a variety of media from architecture to silver, pottery, weaving, and other arts. His personalized work attracted liberal patronage, even during the Great Depression, from clients who could still afford to build, and his buildings remain treasured expressions of his craftsmanly approach to architecture.
Hand Wrought: The Artistry of William Waldo Dodge is an 87 page exhibition catalogue for an exhibition held at Asheville Art Museum, Asheville, NC, from February 18, 2005 to May 22, 2005.
