Here is one of me in 2012. I do like adornment, from time to time. I have since chopped off my hair... 🙂

Courageous, daring, and true to herself. Yea.

Hurrah for the wild woman! I really need some crazier leggings, though.

Jill Vendituoli, Carol Van Gerve thought you'd appreciate this artist! 😍

It's a fantastic home but it must be a right pig to clean.

Art, Craft & Architecture
African Canvas
📷 Margaret Courtney-Clarke
"My objective in this work is to document an extraordinary art form - vernacular art and architecture in West Africa - that is not transportable and therefore not seen in museums around the world. It is an attempt to capture the unseen Africa, a glimpse into the homes and into the spirit of very proud and dignified peoples. In much the same way as I photographed the art of Ndebele women, I have drawn on my personal affinity for the art itself, for methods, design and form, rather than the socio-anthropological or political realities of a people or continent in dilemma. These images portray a unique tradition of Africa, a celebration of an indigenous rural culture in which the women are the artists and the home her canvas.

Gorgeous video of how textile stamps are made. So much skill and patience goes into each one... We have a lot of vintage ones from Afghanistan and will eventually get them listed on Etsy. Meanwhile, contact us if you would like to buy in quantity. It takes too much time to photograph and list each one, but I could put together groupings of them.

Do I need to be a member of SAQA to subscribe to the magazine? I am confused. If the magazine comes with the membership why did I a non member get this offer to purchase a subscription? I can't get anywhere on the website past just putting it in my cart.

It's pretty thrilling to see my work on the cover! Definitely a first for me! And I do feel honored by it because I love this magazine! It's jam packed with good art and good reading!

We have several sets of remnants in the shop! These are great to add on to other projects (jean jackets, bags, etc.). Here's the link for this one: www.etsy.com/listing/173460042/vintage-tribal-talisman-kuchi-beadedwww.etsy.com/listing/173460042/vintage-tribal-talisman-kuchi-beaded from Afghan Tribal Arts $50

This set of remnants contains one large and two small ''Gul I Peron'' tribal disks/patches, as well as a textile remnant. The beaded disks have been salvaged from a garment or other piece. Called "Gul I Peron", which means "dress flower", patches like this one are used by the Kuchi and other nomadic people in Afghanistan as a design element in their clothing. It might be sewn on to a dress or vest or on to another textile. There is cardboard between several layers of fabric which gives support to the beadwork.

The textile remnant is cotton satin stitch embroidery on pieced cotton. the stitch work and size is very similar to some of the apron front dress yokes like this one: www.etsy.com/listing/173275653/vintage-dress-yoke-afghanistan-textile? It is completely hand stitched.

Estimated age: 1980's

www.etsy.com/listing/117521776/afghanistan-vintage-ceremonial-kohistani

Dimensions:
10" wide at the top (25 cm)
15" long (38 cm)
11" wide at the waist (28 cm)

Nuristan, "Land of Light", is a province in the mountainous region of NorthEastern Afghanistan. Kohistan is on the other side of the border in Pakistan. Both share a common a history and have similar garments.

This baby's vest is traditional to the dress in the region: tiny cross stitch designs accented with white beads against black cotton fabric. Nuristan is thought to have been crossed by Alexander the Great. As there are many blondes in the area, they are considered to be his direct descendants.

The embroidery on this is exquisite! Great collector's item.

Ingrid – Beautiful

Ingrid - Her voice from the past is revealed through the layers of Forensic Reconstruction.

She is 41-47 years old and was found at the excavation 'Hole in the Market' in Vlaardingen , Holland. She died approximately 1100 years ago. The goal of reconstruction is to take a skull of an unknown person and recreate the face so that the person can be identified. So many times, people are lost and their bones are discovered under suspicious circumstances or maybe found after thousands of years. By using the reconstruction process, their musculature is recreated and it is possible to discover what they looked like and who they are after the final touches to the skull. This sculpture shows the beginning and the end of the process in another form of art – thread painting. I have applied over seventy colors of thread to the sculpture, bringing her to life. The blending of the colors is integral to the process.

This art is framed with a fabric matte. The quilt has exposed raw edges, allowing the viewer to see the layers of the quilt. The ragged edges echo the passage of the years since Ingrid passed away. Ingrid is now alive through this thread painting for all to see.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800's. Occasionally, a calf gets away as you can see in one of the pictures. The two cowboys were dragged as they tried to catch the cow! We branded 142 calves that day. My ranch manager, Amanda, gathered people from adjoining ranches to help. These cowboys and cowgirls will travel to another ranch each week to assist in brandings for no pay. This is tradition. I was in the pens with my camera, trying not to get run over by a fast horse! We will have 300 calves born this year in New Mexico. ... See MoreSee Less

Branding day at the ranch is a day of hard work. The United States government requires, by law in all 50 states, that all newborn calves be branded. This is a tradition that dates back to othe 1800s.

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

Four years ago I took the picture of Judy in a small grocery store in Bend Oregon. I told her that I used my photographs in my art. She was very excited. I used her photograph in my quilt Judy for the exhibition Balancing Act. I tried to find her for permission to use her image in my book, but Ray’s Grocery was closed and she was lost. When I was at the quilt show in Houston last year I met Jan at the SAQA booth. She lives in Bend. She said she would try to find Judy. Success!!!! Judy now works at Walmart. Jan gave her a copy of my book which I inscribed to her. This circle is complete...The world is truly a small place! ... See MoreSee Less
