These decorative botanical etchings were published in Paris in 1828, dedicated to the Duchess de Berry by the artist Charles d’Aiguebelle. They exemplify the scientific and artistic interest of the period in the study of plants. Highly decorative engravings all matted and framed.
Glydcraft Art Pottery by Steve Blakely exhibited at 100 American Craftsmen, celebrating the art of craft, at the Kenan Center in Lockport NY, the region’s most prestigious show for fine craft art. Steve was awarded the “Best Booth” award for his display of pottery inspired by “Arts & Crafts” or “Mission” era art pottery.
Steve will also be exhibiting at Roycroft Winter Festival in December. "Roycroft" is a very important show for the Arts & Crafts collectors. Elbert Hubbard founded the most successful and long-lived Roycroft Arts & Crafts community in East Aurora, NY in 1895. The Roycroft didn’t survive the stock market crash of 1929 but its tenet of “working with the head, hand and heart” lives on in Arts & Crafts Revival artisans today encouraging dedicated craftsmen to become a part of the Roycroft Renaissance, a revival group of artists based on the high standards of quality workmanship of the original Roycrofters who were huge contributors to the Arts and Crafts era in furniture with similar lines of Stickley, but also had artists working in hand-wrought copper, publishing and other quality crafts. The Roycroft Winter Festival is a show you don’t want to miss.
