Sir Raffles Art & History
www.etsy.com/listing/522684360/antique-saint-sebastian-early-martyr

This is a 7.5" tall carved wood depiction of St. Sebastian. It was produced in Central America in the 18th century. The saint is in his traditional pose, tied to a tree and with arrows once embedded in his flesh. $375

Condition: The saint has lost his right arm above the elbow. The arrows that once pierced his body are also missing. The losses to the polychrome are evident. The twine is much more recent.

Comments: Santos carvings of St. Sebastian, while fairly common, are quite popular due to the striking imagery and his personal story. He is sometimes known as the saint that was martyred twice as he managed to survive the ordeal depicted in this image. He was later clubbed to death by agents of the Emperor Diocletian. He is called upon for intercession by scholars, athletes, soldiers and those seeking reprieve from serious pestilence. He is credited with saving Rome from an outbreak of plaque in 680AD.

This particular piece of folk art is especially well done and from the arguably the most important era of Christianity in that area. Just a great, small piece.

Debra describes this beautiful cuff she made with love, from Australia:

After working in the fastpaced fashion industry the photographer, designer and artist Birgitta de Vos decided to take some time out to travel. Out Of Fashion | The New Fashion tells the story of her decade-long adventure, its pages brimming with the nuances that tie together texture, textiles and travel. Venturing far away from the ‘more-for-less’ attitudes of the fashion highway, Birgitta met artisans who embrace time as a gift. Materials made from natural fibres are her focus: they age with dignity acting as a gentle marker by which to recognise – and appreciate – the passing of time.

Jaime Guerrero's process has taken years to perfect. Beyond blowing the glass, joining the pieces is one of the most difficult parts of making the works. If the pieces are not all the same temperature when joining, they could shatter–making the finished works all the more impressive.
You can watch Jaime make the works in Mano-Made (opening August 26th) in the Craft in America episode NEIGHBORS airing nationwide on September 29th (*check local listings).

Craft in America

This event is free; an RSVP is strongly encouraged to rsvp@craftinamerica.org.

Please join us on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 4pm for a discussion on child immigration with Professor of Human Development and Psychology at the UCLA Institute for Immigration, Globalization & Education, Dr. Carola Suárez-Orozco.

In conjunction with Mano-Made: New Expression in Craft by Jaime Guerrero, the Craft in America Center is hosting the next talk in our Craft in Action Lecture Series regarding the psychological development and identity formation of child immigrants. For this discussion, Dr. Suárez-Orozco will be presenting her research and leading a conversation with artist Jaime Guerrero focusing on youth immigration in Los Angeles. The discussion will provide insight into the experiences of these children and how we can best support their integration into the fiber of the Los Angeles community.

Dr. Suárez-Orozco is the the Co-Director at the Institute for Immigration, Globalization, and Education as well as the Senior Program Associate of the W.T. Grant Foundation. Her latest book is titled Transitions: The Development of Children of Immigrants (2015) which is the winner of the 2016 SRA Social Policy Award for Best Edited Book. Her research is focused broadly on the adaptation of immigrant families and youth. Areas of specialization include the educational achievement among immigrant origin youth, immigrant family separations, the role of the “social mirror” in identity formation, the role of mentors in facilitating youth development, gendered experiences of immigrant youth, unauthorized status and development, and immigrant emerging adults in community college settings.

This event is the third talk in Craft in America's initiative: Craft in Action, a series of talks using art as a channel to build awareness and activate for social good. Stay posted for more events taking place in coming months.

I carried those socks in my gallery for years & they were always a great seller! I have them & they are still as beautiful after 9 years as they were the day I got them! Love good artists & vendors such as Soulmates!

Aid to Artisans

August 9th marks the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, a day to celebrate the stories, cultures and unique identities of indigenous people from around the world.

Today is also a reminder to not lose sight of the difficulties that many indigenous communities still face today, including poverty, social exclusion and threats to their cultural heritage.

By supporting artisans like the rural Pakistani embroiderers pictured here, Aid to Artisans is committed to preserving the beautiful traditions still practiced today while making them relevant to today’s international buyers. In doing so, ATA is creating economic opportunities for these indigenous artisans, and helping to lift indigenous communities out of poverty.

Which one of your puppets is this hat going on? 🙂

Very cool, Laura!

How about a Leonard Cohen puppet for that cool fedora?

Hey I know this hat!

I think I will make ol' Leonard after I finish the commissions I'm currently working on:)

Carving out the bowl of a coffee scoop. It holds about 2 tablespoons. Definitely one of the more satisfying of processes to spoon carving. Nice sound🎶🎶🏂 🌲🌲wood is Elm.

As far as sharpening, I don't do anything different than with a normal straight knife. I use water stones. Except I wrap sand paper around a wooden dowel for the inside of the blade. #handmadeology #handmade

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

I am now being represented in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico!! Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the United States.The emphasis this month is Cosmos flowers. These three pieces include the flowers. Oreo - the new Bull calf was born at our ranch in New Mexico a month ago. I am now covering the entire art in thread with no free motion quilting. I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image. My art is now framed. My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint. It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!! ... See MoreSee Less

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

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.
