rustic decorative - Making Twig
Making Twig Mosaic Rustic Furniture (Schiffer Book for Woodworkers)
Once confined to backwoods cabins and hunting lodges, rustic furniture is being recognized today for its primitive ingenuity and beauty. Craftspeople around the country are recapturing the techniques and visions of earlier craftsmen who recognized the beauty of natural materials and functionality of common-sense design. They merged the two in styles of furniture that were perfectly suited to their rugged environments. Now these wonderful rustic creations are finding their way into some of the finest homes and most elegant galleries. Larry Hawkins specializes in twig mosaic furniture. Twig mosaic utilizes the great variety of color and texture in the bark of twigs and trees to create wonderful patterns on the surfaces of furniture. The results are fantastic pieces of furniture, destined to take a predominant place in any room setting. Larry takes the reader/craftsman step-by-step through the process of creating a tiered clock. The techniques learned along the way can be applied to any number of furniture forms, many of which are shown in the gallery. Every step is illustrated with a full color photograph and a precise description of the processes involved.
Wrought Iron and rustic wall, Belgrave Road,Leytonstone, E11. Postcard, 1912
The postmark reads Leyton, but I have tracked it down to Belgrave Road E11 (not E10) It is either house no. 92 or 110. Modern "improvements" to 110 have made it difficult to see what was there before. This long street of spacious late Edwardian villas contains many styles of window, decorative mouldings, door and porch such that it can be pinned down to just one or two dwellings. No 92 is almost identical except that the original door has six panes of glass not four. Quite a number of these houses retain (without wrought iron) the rustic and somewhat nutty walls, but many others have been removed. Early voters lists might identify Hilda the sender who was most likely a daughter. Notice how the semi-circular motif in the gate echoes that in the wall. Crazy or what? The house must have been only a few years old. Ineresting that the glazing bars are not the same colour as the sash frames(which also don't look white) The porch does seem to be white. In fact , old photos of late victorian houses always show dark sashes, so one wonders when the fad for white started. Now in London Borough of Redbridge

The natural world is our home, and we like to bring a little bit of it into the house, writes Laura Donnelly Bethmann in the preface to this unique home decorating guide. She and co-author Ann Ramp Fox practice twigology, which they define as "the art of forming whimsical, practical, naturally pleasing twig things while enhancing one's knowledge of the unique characteristics and beneficial qualities of trees." Now they share their art in this colorful handbook filled with easy-to-make, attractive, and inexpensive features and accents for every room using vines twigs, and branches. One look and you'll yearn to be a twigologist, too. Getting started is easy with the authors' clear, straightforward instructions, a few simple tools, and some free of inexpensive materials. In no time at all you'll be creating your own natural-feeling home environment, accented with the whimsical projects you've made with your own hands.
A stroll through the woods or even a trip to the backyard will yield most of the no-cost materials needed to create the nature-inspired decorative items featured here. Using very basic tools and supplies (pruning shears, hammer and nails, wire, glue, and twine), the authors whip together twig-bedecked baskets, lampshades, desk accessories, clocks, frames, bathroom caddies, window treatments, and dollhouse furniture, as well as such major pieces as a headboard and faux mantel. Directions are adequate for these generally simple projects, but more photographs of the finished product would have been preferable to the colored drawings that illustrate most projects. --Amy Handy
