The art of making: this issue explores our obsession with craft and asks why we cling to the tangible in a post-material age. Icon's editor Priya Khanchandani delves into Reality TV's unlikely love of the handmade and talks to the winner of the Netflix’s competitive glass-blowing series Blown Away. Eddie Blake finds God in the most unlikely places, from warehouses to bingo halls. And we also look at the spectacular installations that rose from the desert sand at this year's Burning Man.
