An All-American Quilt
An All-American Quilt
I got to photograph a quilt, for the first time. The quilt I photographed commemorates the coming birth of a child, William Culler. The proud parents, Ed and Donna Culler, asked me to create special photographic images of the quilt given to them by Ben and Martha Jackson. What is a quilt? And what is it used for? Well, I scoured the net and put together a simple research material to get us up-to-snuff. Here’s a cheat’s guide to quilting. The first obvious source is Wikipedia; and here’s what’s written in there: A quilt is a type of bedding — a bed covering composed of a quilt top, a layer of batting, and a layer of fabric for backing, generally combined using the technique of quilting. Another technique for securing the quilt layers is tying. Tying refers to the technique of using thread, yarn or ribbon to pass through all three layers of the quilt at reqular intervals. These "ties" hold the layers together during use and especially when the quilt is washed. This method is easier and more forgiving if the quilt is made by hand. Tied quilts are called, depending on the regional area, "lap", "comfort" or "comforter", among other names. Many quilts are made with decorative designs;, some quilts are not used as bed covering at all, but are rather made to be hung on a wall or otherwise displayed. In British English, quilt is another way of saying duvet, wadding is another way of saying batting, and calico refers to muslin rather than to a fabric with a printed pattern on it. Some uses of quilts include bedding, decoration, body wraps, armory, commemoration, education, campaigning, documenting events, documenting social and personal histories, artistic expression, among others. Some quilts can be considered “art.” Distinguishing art quilts from the main category of quilts can be difficult. Art quilts can be created using any of the techniques of a quilt - piecing, applique, whole cloth, or even machine embroidery. These are techniques, though, and art involves more than mere technique. Meaningfulness, in whatever way the viewer perceives it, is involved in the experience of an art quilt, as opposed to a quilt built as an exercise in craft or technical capabilities, or for practical bedroom purposes. The term “art quilt“ itself is controversial, since it implies that quilts in other categories are not art. Quilts have always been made, however, with their aesthetic value as a consideration, even when makers were creating objects for practical use in their homes and bedrooms. To this extent, nearly all quilts evidence artistic/creative expression and their functional raison d'etre as well as their materials and techniques support their visual statements, expressions that can be as powerful viewed on a bed as from the flat expanse of a gallery wall. What perhaps distinguishes the art of the home-based maker from that of the studio-based maker are context and intent. The works of makers such as the quilters of Gee's Bend, Alabama demonstrate, however, that notions of what distinguishes a so-called ”art quilt“ from an everyday ”bed quilt“ may reside less in the minds of the makers than in the eyes of the beholders. What colors are quilts made of? The colours used in art quilts are determined by their creators, but quilts which go beyond the basic "bed quilt" are usually distinguishable by non-traditional colours or pattern interpretation. Fiber Artists such as Valerie Page of PageQuilts, or Melody Crust, demonstrate their vision by the use of complementary and contrasting colours, and complex and unpredictable but balanced patterns. The result may be mathematical in nature, as is the case with the Fibonacci number textile patterns Valerie Page creates. Quilts have names. During the late 1900's, the quilt community started to encourage quilters to label their quilts, starting with a name for the quilt, in addition to their own name, and completion date for the work. This was an important step in taking the craft of quilting into the art realm. A quilt's name implies there is some meaning to a quilt beyond its creation, to whatever degree, though meaning is found in quilts without names as well. Emotion in an art quilt. One aspect of some art quilts is the ability of the piece to evoke an emotion in the viewer. While examples of quilts displaying the darker end of the emotional spectrum are still rare, they do exist. Quilts focused on the September 11, 2001 attacks have particularly explored grief and anger. The history of quilt and quilt-making is fascinating. For a concise information, we turn to what Nelda Mohr wrote from the AnswerPoint website. Here’s the capsulated story: When we speak of quilt making, we really are talking of three different crafts: quilting, patchwork and applique. Quilting refers to the sewing together of two layers of fabric with an inner layer of some warm, insulating material, such as cotton, silk or wool. It is both practical and
An Arts and Crafts Style Bungalow - Essendon
An Arts and Crafts Style Bungalow - Essendon
This symmetrical Reformist (Arts and Crafts) style bungalow may be found in a quiet street in the Melbourne suburb of Essendon. Built in the years just after the Great War (1914), you can just start to see the transition from Edwardian villa to the popular Californian Bungalow of the early 1920s. The overall design with an arched canopy over the central porch is very in keeping with the Arts and Crafts Movement, as is the choice of exposed red brick to build the house with. However, decoration typical of the "Metroland" Art Deco period are starting to appear in the design: most notably in the window design which is now free of stained glass and the two rounded columns that flank the front entrance. The portico entrance features a wonderful wrough-iron grille of swirls, which is more reminiscent of the Spanish Mission design period of the mid to late 30s, and may have been a later feature to modernise the bungalow's facade. Arts and Crafts houses challenged the formality of the mid and high Victorian styles that preceded it, and were often designed with uniquely angular floor plans. This house's floor plan appears to be more traditional than others, with a central hallway off which the principal rooms were located. Essendon was etablished in the 1860s and became an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. A villa like this may have required the employment of a live in domestic as well as a "daily" woman to assist the mistress of the house with any heavy chores to keep the villa well maintained.
