ARH 358 Week Five Monday Augustus Pugin Unique in the way he critiques the mass production of objects has a very selective and re ned way to design Work is very Gothic Possesses concepts dealing with the lack of substance of contemporary design emphasizes the relationship of the designer and the end result of the design conclusion gothic possesses the values of Pugin s own time Pugin designed the interior and exterior of St Giles Cheadle England which stresses the gothic style and the importance of contemporary values the overall atmosphere Heng Cole known for using industrial manufacturing and the production of glassware ex The Tendril Wine Glass produced by Cole s summerly s art manufactures Tendril Wine Glass is very light and airy and has a reference to nature The mother s primer famous for new design ideas Cole founded the journal of Design 1851 the separation of design and manufacturing process Cole Stresses the collaboration of the manufacturing process 1851 Great Exhibition and Joseph Paxton The crystal palace a great platform to showcase modern design Joseph Paxton was a green house designer and manufacturer for the wealthy the great exhibition brought competition between nations as well as cultural exhibitions which took place in London as industrial exhibitions and art exhibitions There came a growing awareness that the large modern designs were replacing the Gothic style Thomas Warren the cast iron chair very lavish and fancy but at the same time ugly possesses a confused state of design We re living in a period of wonderful transition Prince Albert Wednesday Today in class we talked about reaching the height of Design reformation and reviewed Christopher Dresser Let s Review Pugin a very important gure of the reform movement His focus was the Gothic style 1851 exhibition was a touchstone of society from an economic cultural and design standpoint Dresser was a product of schools of design headed by Cole He was strongly in uenced by the design reform from the 1840 s that focused on Pugin and Cole and his style was much less historical that Pugin s style and much more interested in an original type of design Dresser possessed deep roots from the beginning in Botany not from an interest background but also from a scienti c viewpoint and in this we see Dresser overlapping with Cole Remember Cole s emphasis on nature The 1851 great exhibition at this time had a profound affect on Christopher dresser Dresser used the roles of nature within his design and he attempted to use scienti c methods to see designs that are abstract He used stylization and abstraction and the study of nature The Grammar of Ornament By Owen Jones was very important in the design reform because of its oceanic Egyptian design and its relationship to pattern books Christopher Desser s botanical drawings and the Grammar of Design was important for models of design the study of natural form bold tradition and design perspective that promoted design culmination Christopher Dresser exposed the leadership of his art journal using the scienti c study of nature This expresses the important uid relationship between scientists and artists In Christopher Dresser s Pages of articles uses the concept of metamorphosis and the scholarly study and understanding of nature Christopher Dresser tried to state a more stylized image of plant form and nature and tried to incorporate the close study of Botany into a stylized design in the art decorative design There is a very symbiotic relationship of the letters and plants as they work harmoniously with the frame of the piece Christopher Dresser had a fascination with Japanese art Dresser worked with 30 manufactures to design Japanese designs In 1877 Dresser took Japanese Designs to Tiffany s which re ected cutting edge modern design Dresser s aesthetic awareness with his designs at this point was crucial Dresser died in 1904 Christopher Dresser s Evening star very evocative as he tried to combine science and art in way that has never been seen before in this piece This piece carries a sense of moment and atmosphere and the presence of nature From the evening star piece and Dresser s style we can gather an academic understanding of nature and the infinite source of inspiration the kind of inspiration Dresser brings to design for designs and make a connection to nature for an aesthetic viewpoint and problem solving Continuing in his Evening star piece with the theory of connection between art and botany and the love and experience with twilight and the sense of surrealism and stream of consciousness brought to this piece and to the 19005 Christopher Dresser was very intuitive and responsive and experienced nature on a personal level Next we look at Christopher Dresser s design for Minton China 1867 This was very imaginative yet still natural as Dresser combines history with nature Again we see plant forms experimental quality of power and experimentation interpretive dimensions of nature and the direction of lines and color that impact emotions of the viewer Friday Today is class a couple students needed clari cation about Cole
