Window On Collecting Art & Antiques
Episode #4: Theophilus Brouwer Pottery
Theophilus Brouwer's abilities were diverse in the extreme. He was a skilled carpenter and architect, as well as a sculptor of public monuments, living in the Long Island, NY, area. Brouwer also decided to create art pottery between 1893 and 1911, calling his studio, Middle Lane Pottery. He used some of the most unusual, complex and difficult processes possible. Brouwer developed a type of glazing which he called "Flame Painting." Remarkable iridescent flame-like effects appeared on the surfaces. A number of other complicated glazes and techniques were developed at his hands.
Episode #3: Vintage Books
Paul J. Katrich talks about collecting books, and he shows interesting examples. Vintage, rare and antiquarian books can often be found at very low prices. Compared to computer files, books can be collected as physical objects, to be held and enjoyed in many ways. Beginning collectors can easily start a personal library. Literature, nonfiction and instructional titles are shown. Book art is displayed, including Gustave Dore illustrations in a copy of Dante's Inferno.
