battle of the C words...

I've been thinking a lot about craft within capitalism. Craft... Consumerism... Capitalism.... Communism even?
Its seems like an interesting line of research for me. It was the Niaomi Klien artical in the guardian this weekend that got me thinking about it.
They are the two C words (and ceramics obviously) that I could argue forever. i want to research communist folk craft traditions (which are ace) to communist worker/factory relations (which were a bit rubbish), sham techniques of industrialisation, marketing techniques of calling fucking sandwiches 'handcrafted' and putting them brown 'recyclable' packaging and all that shit that goes on. Craft as 'eco' and 'green'..... sure. SELL ,SELL. SELL.
