Best of Boston
2015 Best Museum, South
Fuller Craft Museum
Don’t let the name fool you: This Brockton institution isn’t a musty warehouse of old quilts and wooden shoes. It’s instead a showcase for contemporary handmade objets d’art, a place where sublime ceramics made at East Cambridge’s Clay Dragon Studios sit beside burnished-aluminum mobiles inspired by the myth of Icarus. Later this year, the museum will unveil an intricate, kaleidoscopic survey of enamel art from the 1920s to the present day, and, most eye-catching of all, artist Stan Munro’s massive replicas of such architectural wonders as the Taj Mahal and the White House—rendered entirely in toothpicks.
