  • Waterford Crystal A Case Analysis

    3409 words - 14 pages

    HISTORY OF WATERFORD CRYSTAL Waterford Glass was started by two brothers, George and William Penrose, in 1783. It was the most notable of all Irish crystal companies. In 1799, the Penrose brothers sold Waterford Glass to the Gatchell family. The crystal industry was prosperous until 1825. Irish glass manufacturers began to slowly close due to high export duties, the economic depression, and a lack of capital. Waterford Glass was the last to close in 1851. It was reestablished nearly a century later by Charles Bacik and Bernard Fitzpatrick. In 1947, they set up a factory

    Margaret Bourke-White was born on June 14th, 1904, in the Bronx, New York. Her father, Joseph White, was an inventor and engineer, and her mother, Minnie Bourke, was forward thinking woman, especially for the early 1900's. When Margaret was very young, the family moved to a rural suburb in New Jersey, so that Joseph could be closer to his job. Margaret, along with her sister Ruth, were taught from an early age by their mother. Her mother was strict in monitoring their outside influences, limiting everything from fried foods to funny papers. W

    Writing and thinking about ceramics have for too long been tucked away as a sub-category in larger disciplines or fields of study. These include archaeology, art history, anthropology and technology. Pottery can be a mundane household utensil or a highly valued work of art, to an archaeologist a tiny shard of ancient pot may be a vital piece of evidence; to an antique dealer a tiny chip may halve the value of the piece; to a householder a chipped jug may be consigned to the dustbin or displayed on the dresser because it carries sentimental value. Arts and crafts practice have long been divided

    What I hold in my hand is obvious to you all. Of course it’s a camera. And it’s a nice looking digital camera with a pretty orange color. Beyond the obvious, what I hold in my hand is an instrument that has served society since 1685. Besides the simple function to just take photographs, the camera has informed us, provided mixed emotions, and changed the way we perceive things. The image we capture with our minds is not the same image we capture through the lens of a camera. What I hold in my other hand is not too obvious. It looks like a notebook but I consider it to be my journal. It’s

    Alex Picasso From Paintings to Portraits Henri Cartier-Bresson stated, “It seems dangerous to be a portrait artist who does commissions for clients because everyone wants to be flattered, so they pose in such a way that there’s nothing left of truth.” Portrait photography is a way of capturing somebody else’s expression, character, and personality. A single shot of a crying baby could capture a story behind their face or it can simply document their existence. Portrait photographers are also artists because they can manipulate reality by using fancy lighting techniques, make-up tricks, filt

    The 1900’s photographer Dorothea Lange humanized the Great Depression and brought to life the faces that she photographed during World War II. She was a natural photographer in a true sense because she lived, in her words, "a visual life." She would look at a pair of calloused hands, lines of people, or a woman with her children and find a story behind it. Her eye was a camera lens and her camera--as she put it--an "appendage of the body." Lange was born on May 25th in 1895 in Hoboken , New Jersey . Sadly, In 1902 at the young age of seven, she developed Polio, which weakened her right leg.

    Is Commercial Photography Parasitic? Anandi Ramamurthy: Commercial photography, for the most part, has not sought to stretch the medium of photography, since one of the key characteristics of all commercial photography is its parasitism. (Wells, L., p.204) For me, the idea that commercial photography is openly and brazenly “parasitic” is a revelation. I now realise how important it is for me to discuss and work through this question in relation to my own work – it is a crucial element for me to understand.

    The Origins And Evolution Of Neolithic Culture In Ireland

    1456 words - 6 pages

    The Neolithic period, also known as The New Stone Age, ranges from about 3500 to 2500BC (Ruckenstein & O’Malley 2004:393). The origins of the Neolithic period in Ireland lay in the use of farming; farming changed the Mesolithic society because people were now less likely to go hungry and had more opportunities to do constructive activities as they no longer had to spend all their time hunting. As the Neolithic people did not need to move around as much their homes were built for permanent inhabitance. The first Neolithic houses found in Ireland were excavated by Sean P.

Thus, whereas certain forms of art disappear for periods at a time to reappear in an other form or style, the ceramic art appears in all periods from the time it made its first appearance in Greek lands in the 6th Millennium B.C.

Catalase is found in many living things to reduce levels of hydrogen peroxide, which is a fatal by-product of normal cell functioning. For our lab we will use a yeast solution as a source for catalase. The chemical hydrogen peroxide slowly decomposes
