Artists' Handmade Houses

Ever wonder what an artist's home would look like if he or she were the mind behind it? This month, Abrams has published a stunning new coffee table book that peeks inside the abodes of 13 well-known, American craftspeople who built their homes themselves. Appropriately titled Artists' Handmade Houses, the book features beautiful images by Don Freeman and text by Michael Gotkin. Here we look at the homes of Russel Wright, Paolo Soleri, and George Nakashima.

Sculptor, ceramist, and tableware designer Russel Wright built his home in Garrison, New York, in the 1950s. Design influences from Japan stemmed from a trip to Asia in 1955. The kitchen, shown here, features windows that look out upon rocks that lead up to Wright's studio. The ceramics are nearly all of his design.
