Dec 9, 2022
When the producers of “Craft in America,” a Peabody Award-winning documentary series that’s aired on PBS since 2007, wanted to take a look at craft artists and handmade homes in America, they made their way to the Inverness home of Sim Van der Ryn.
“We first turned to the brilliance of Wharton Esherick and then decided to look into handmade homes on the West Coast to see how they might be different from Esherick’s aesthetic,” says Jacoba Atlas, the segment’s senior advisor.
Van der Ryn intrigued them.
