Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to explore how theoretical studies on handicrafts may be rewarding and usefull for a craftsman. The aim is also to explore how quality is defined within crafts and to explore different aesthetic qualities that can be achieved within the craft of cabinetmaking. In addition, the aim is also to broaden the view on how skillfullnes may be expressed within the craft of cabinetmaking. The work begins with theoretical studies of two craft philosophers - David Pye and Soetsu Yanagi. Then, their ideas are applied practically through the making of two pieces of furniture. Aesthetic expressions characterized by randomness, imperfection and irregularity is specially sought after. The conclusions of the thesis shows that theoretical studies may be benefiting and rewarding for a craftsman.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta arbete är att visa hur teoretiska studier om hantverk är utvecklande och användbara för en praktiserande hantverkare. Syftet är också att undersöka vad som definierar gott hantverk samt att undersöka vilka olika estetiska kvalitéer som kan åstadkommas inom snickerihantverket. Dessutom vill arbetet bredda synen på hur skicklighet och förståelse för materialet trä kan uttryckas. Arbetet inleds med teoretiska studier av två hantverksfilosofer - David Pye och Soetsu Yanagi. Därefter tillämpas deras idéer praktiskt genom tillverkningen av två möbler. Särskilt fokus läggs på att åstadkomma estetiska uttryck som präglas av slump, imperfektion och irregularitet. Slutsatserna visar att ett teoretiska studier kan bredda en praktiserande hantverkares syn på vad som är möjligt att åstadkomma inom snickerihantverket samt att materialet trä tillåter en bredd av uttryck.
