The work of artists who express their creativity unbounded by taught conventions in the medium of applied art. The established and historically renowned artists associated with Outsider Art and contemporary self-taught artists are discussed those who see themselves as facing barriers to the art world for reasons including health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. The chapter discusses how craft is used to communicate a particular dynamic of living and making, of using transformative potential of craft to enter other visionary world where craft becomes a process of resistance and method of adaptation.
