This background paper is part of the Office of Technology Assessment’s (OTA’s)ongoing monitoring of renewable resource/technology issues for Congress. It wasstimulated by discussions with Congressman Sidney R. Yates’ staff. Mr. Yates chairsthe Interior Subcommittee, House Appropriations Committee, the subcommitteewith jurisdiction over the National Endowment for the Arts, which is the majorU.S. fine and folk arts agency, and the Department of the Interior, which is themajor U.S. natural resource management agency.The paper summarizes technology’s effects on crafts (some of which are folk and fine art) that use renewable resources as raw materials. Technology’s effectson other types of art, such as the performing arts, and on other types of crafts,such as ceramics, also are significant. They are not discussed here, however, becausenonrenewable resource supplies are outside the purview of the OTA Food andRenewable Resources Program.The OTA exploratory work included staff research and extensive conversa-tions with more than 50 craft and renewable resource specialists. A half-day work-shop involving six Washington experts provided important additional information;its results are summarized separately in appendix A.This paper was prepared by OTA Project Director Phyllis Windle. OTA wishesto acknowledge the workshop participants, reviewers, and others who providedgenerous assistance.
