Veshja përcjell informacion në lidhje me statusin social, gjinor, etnik, prejardhjen, përkatësitë fetare dhe profesionin e një personi, duke treguar aspekte shoqërore të bartësit në një kohë të caktuar brenda një grupi shoqëror. Roli i saj, si pjesë e nevojshme e jetës së përditshme, por dhe funksionet që kryen, e bëjnë atë një element jo vetëm estetik, por dhe tejet të dobishëm. Veshja është një manifestim i shumanshëm jo vetëm i kulturës materiale të një populli, por përtej kësaj, veshja është një simbol, një shenjë, një metamorfozë për bartësin. Veshja detyrimisht është një element tregues se kush je, si gjuhë e trupit, por dhe tregon një përkatësi shoqërore. Në këtë kuptim, veshja është një tregues i shumë aspekteve të njeriut dhe për këtë ajo kthehet në objekt studimi për shumë fusha. Veshjet tradicionale janë padyshim një nga manifestimet më të spikatura të kulturës materiale.

Wedgwood's copy of the Barberini aka Portland Vase...
#wedgewood #jasperware #copy #decorativeart #materialculture #visualculture #barberinivase #eighteenthcentury #roman #britishmuseum🏛 #londonlife🇬🇧
Sarah Sophia collected numerous admission tickets, (her collection contains over 4,000) and this one is for entrance to view Joshua Wedgwood's jasperware copy of the Portland vase. Wedgwood's pottery warehouse and showroom was located in Soho, at Greek street, just around the corner from 32 Soho square, where Sarah Sophia lived.

Wedgwood's Portland vase... In 1787 Sir Joseph Banks claimed that Joshua Wedgwood 'turned the craft of pottery into a scientific endeavour'. The first perfect copy of Wedgwood's Portland vase, was displayed to 'numerous company' at the Banks home in 32 Soho square. 
This anonymous artist's watercolour, now in the collection of Sarah Sophia Banks, shows the vase from three different angles. Below each, the name Wedgwood is an anagram for Mr.Wowdedog, Mr. W.Godewdo, and Mr. DeGowdow. As these measure around 2 x 3 1/2 inches each, it's possible these were preliminary designs for the final admission ticket.

Pot update...the Sycamore range is filling up nicely. They were designed by Glyn Colledge for Langley Pottery and in production from 1963 to 1965. Stunning pattern variants and also hand painted.

Work in progress: "Dray Men", acrylic on paper, 30" x 22". Continuing with The Staffordshire Series, this painting is based on the figurines of the same name. Dray Men were strong,beefy men who conveyed  large beer kegs in England. Drays were a special type of cart used to move the beer kegs.

This is why I so love objects. This little shard of stained glass tells such a tale. Housed at Barley Hall (a Tudor house museum in York), it shows the marriage of the white rose of York with the pomegranate, the symbol of Catherine of Aragon. #yorkuk #tudorrose #catherineofaragon #materialculture #stainedglass

Fashionable and Elegant headdresses for the year

This engraving was a pull-out page from an eighteenth-century, ladies pocketbook. Published annually, they were small agenda-like books measuring about 4 x 2 inches, comprised of diaries and 'useful' information. They were used by readers to understand social convention. At the front of these books were 2 engraved pictures. From fashion to political events, these images depicted a variety of scenes. They were intended to be collectibles; women pulled them out, compared images, swapped and pasted them in albums. As such they offered women the opportunity to participate in many forms of connoisseurship. This engraving comes from the fascinating collection of Sarah Sophia Banks now housed in the British Museum.

An Old Maid on a Journey, hand-coloured etching by James Gillray, depicts Sarah Sophia Banks (1744-1818), sister to the celebrated botanist and President of the Royal Society, Sir Joseph Banks. Her print collection, which she built throughout her lifetime, is now housed in the British Museum and there are several albums in the British library. It is the largest and most varied collection the museum had ever accepted of its kind, and now rightfully recognised by the museum's prints and drawings' department as one of its foundation collections. It is comprised of over 19,000 articles of printed material, including trade cards, fashion plates, admission tickets, visitor cards, book tickets, press cuttings, maps, satirical prints, frontispiece, commemoration prints, ballads-and much more. She was also an avid collector of coins and medals. Her rich and varied collection provides a fascinating lens onto a specific period of time. Here, Gillray pokes fun at Sarah Sophia's collecting obsession.

Excited to dig into this beautiful book by @aanch_m, whose work is an inspiration in how to weave together the study of history and material culture. At the book's official launch yesterday evening some voices contrasted this work with more "academic" approaches to studying Partition. This was meant as a compliment, but I nonetheless disagree with the assessment, the distinction made - a creative approach, a focus on the mundane and minute or on individual experiences, do not make a work un-academic, particularly when grounded in such painstaking research. Conversely, the academic needs to be open to innovative approaches like Aanchal's that offer new perspectives and sites of investigation. If not, we will continue to miss much of the picture, and ultimately the point.

So how do we get to finds? How does what we build or make end up in dirt for #archaeologists to dig up? 
It doesn't always end up in dirt... Or rather, it much depends on the environment what happens precisely. Here, we see #nature taking over a #building. Slowly, year after year, greenery will come in and grow in cracks of stone, slowly prising the stone itself apart. Soil will cover the floor - either tiny particles blown in by the wind (plains with silty soil are big on this particular feat) or the mulch created by leaves and other organic decayed matter will create the humus earth that will make the first layer, and then another and another. In some places, like tropical rainforest, the acidity of the soil will make it difficult for most materials (like bones) to survive. Trees, too, can take over an object (you can see that with many old temples and cities). Dry arid areas will cover even large objects with the always shifting sand and dry out organic material so that it is preserved, and very cold humid environment will do it too, something that is very easy to see where animal or human remains have been found in what used to be a marsh (so called bog bodies like the Lindow man). Freezing preserves in a way not dissimilar. 
Bottom line is that the #naturalenvironment constantly shifts. There is always a new accumulation of earth and that will slowly start to cover the #materialculture in question. Even as large as a building or a monument. The environment leaves us clues, however. A slight change in the terrain, a different type of grass and sometimes the stories and #myth attached to a specific space can all be informative and lead us to a place where we get to make a discovery. When I was at Uni, the first thing I was taught was that out of twenty buried people, every twentieth will be found, and out of them, every twentieth will be complete enough to make the #interpretation work easy. And interpretation is of great importance. It teaches us about ourselves and others, about how we do things and where we come from and how we deal with the challenges of our world.

Aren't they gorgeous? Three vases from the Sycamore range designed by Glyn Colledge for Langley Pottery from 1963 to 1965. Much more restrained than his designs for Denby but his distinctive decorative touch remains. Have two more pieces in the post...ooops

See an intriguing new display in our Dutch and Flemish Art Gallery. These stoneware jugs and tankards were made in Germany (Westerwald and Raeren) between about 1600-1720, and are of the type that is frequently depicted in Dutch Golden Age still lifes and interior scenes.

Huge quantities of these kind of vessels were made in Germany during the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries for export throughout northern and eastern Europe. 
A Westerwald jug can be spotted in the painting 'A Distillery with an Elderly Man Buying Gin' by David Teniers the Younger that hangs to the right of this display.

A smaller brother to the rather large Concept vase (you can scroll down and find it in my feed)...in this stunning grey/blue glaze. Designed by Martin Hunt and introduced in 1977.

This acquisition marks pretty much the completion of having all colours and shapes of Concept vases. V&ASouth is winning 😂

I really enjoyed roaming across the islands of Stockholm this week. Here is a sketch of Nordic Museum in Djurgarden. The castle is home to a variety exhibitions spanning from furniture to architecture, lighting and textile dating back from 16th century to today. Great place to learn about European material culture and origins of the design classics. #idsketching #sketch #archsketch #urbansketch #stockholm #nordicmuseum #materialculture #objects #arqsketch #castle #sketchbook #arch #djurgarden

A bit depressing going back to a gas hob in our new place...when I got used to the efficiency and cleanliness of induction. But at least get to use once more my beloved Aldo Rossi Cupola coffee pot. An evergreen 1988 classic.

August 12, 2017: @lisawild26 suggested "existential dread" and the first thing that came to mind was "Road to Nowhere" by the Talking Heads. Which reminded me of the brilliant part in David Byrne's True Stories (1986) when he brings the audience along to the new mall in Virgil and walks through it with John Goodman-- the"shopping is a feeling" scene. He's so careful in that movie not to judge the people he is documenting. Even though it's not a documentary he humanize his characters and shows such interest in their complex inner worlds, you begin to see how mass consumption and malls and highways have become our destinations. For me, existential dread is a road that looks like it will open into an expanse but really just ends at the mall. I didn't have time to stitch the mall though, so somebody will have to suggest that until it wins. For the film: https://vimeo.com/29316179. Directions/FAQ: I use a random number generator and count out the comments until I get to that day's number. Comment below with suggestions for tomorrow's stitch (an object, a feeling or sensation, a specific embroidery stitch), and I'll pick one at random to add! #materialculture #textilearts #fibertarts #queerartist #femmeartist #feministart #embroidery #embroideryinstaguild #1yearofstitches2017 #womenartists

A more minimal direction with this 1960s Poole freeform vase. A classic 1950s shape coloured in the beautiful lime yellow colour from the twintone range of tableware.
