Andrew Clemens: A Self-taught Folk Artist
Andrew Clemens, a self-trained society craftsman, didn't live long enough to appreciate the distinction. His works were executed in the sand and contained in little pharmacist bottles. In spite of their sensitive craftsmanship, the mid-nineteenth century public would have thought of them as interests, not amazing bits of compelling artwork. To demonstrate their genuineness and to engage the common participants of dime exhibition halls, these bits of sand workmanship were frequently crushed to pieces. "It's an inquisitively miserable story, similar to a scene in a Dickensian tale," composes Ken Johnson for The New York Times. Clemens created hundreds of sand art pieces in his lifetime, but only a few have survived. One of them came to auction with Skinner in the month of November in a timed online sale. Andrew Clemens sand art is famous worldwide. Many collectors have the collection of these bottles. Clemens was destined to German and Prussian workers who followed a dash for unheard of wealth to McGregor, Iowa. At five years of age, Clemens contracted encephalitis. In spite of the fact that he endure the expanding of his cerebrum, the craftsman lost his hearing and quite a bit of his discourse. That early ailment later carried him to the Iowa Institute for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb. During his understudy days, Clemens began to follow his advantage in craftsmanship. His late spring get-aways were spent investigating the feigns of the Mississippi River, gathering pieces of diverse sandstone and quartz. Clemens painstakingly constructed a range from the grains of these stones. He discovered shades of unadulterated white, ochre, red, yellow, blue, and green. When Clemens returned home, the genuine work started. His first tasks included layering the shaded sand in adjusted pharmacist bottles utilizing basic herringbone or jewel designs. Andrew Clemens sand art bottles gained fame. Steadily, however, Clemens' expertise expanded and he took on more goal-oriented subjects. Clemens utilized hand-created instruments to control the sand. He never protected his works with stick, rather depending on cautious pressing and strain to hold all the grains set up. Each container was finished tops curvy prior to being for all time fixed. "One container of this sand, addressing the forty odd tones, gauging twenty pounds, we especially appreciated as showing the expertise and creativity of the youthful craftsman who has organized the different tones in an appealing, imaginative and capable way," the North Iowa Times wrote in 1875. "The youthful craftsman was only fourteen days drew in upon this one container." His jugs were carefully tedious to make, with some needing longer than a time of work. The most multifaceted jugs had concealing and were three-dimensional. As Clemens set up himself locally, he began taking commissions for the sand craftsmanship bottles. A few clients mentioned their own names written in expound content, while others favoured fragile bloom scenes. This art is rare, find this art work for auction before all others. Check the auction calendar of auctiondaily. The containers were normally sold for between USD 5 and $7, or around $130 to $180 in the present cash. Over a century after they were created, the value of these jugs has expanded dramatically. Late closeout assesses normally fall somewhere in the range of $20,000 and $30,000. Notwithstanding, the most intricate pieces far outperform those appraisals. Interest in his work started moving upwards with a jug that came to $72,000 in a 2015 Eldred's closeout. All the more as of late, a custom jug for Mrs Eliza B. Lewis sold for $137,500 at Cowan's Auctions. The mallet cost was just about multiple times the high gauge of $35,000. It sold after 87 serious offers. Presently before his passing of tuberculosis at 37 years old, Clemens started accepting acknowledgment. "Our kin don't as expected appreciate this craftsmanship. The expert doesn't appear to know its value nor does he appear to understand his commended position among the innovators of the world," a paper supervisor wrote in 1888. Clemens' specialty will test a really willing business sector in 2020, one more ready to recognize his all-consuming purpose. Media source: AuctionDaily
Making BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies
Erin McKenna's BabyCakes bakery in New York's Lower East Side is a much beloved destination among the vegan foodie community - so much so that after much demand, she opened yet another similar and completely successful sister bakeries, simply named Erin McKenna's, is both Los Angeles and Orlando. What makes these baked goods so popular? Well, first off, everything in the bakery is vegan - and that's not all! From cupcakes to waffles to even freshly baked doughnuts, Erin makes sure there's something available for every diet or possible allergy, never using refined sugars, gluten/wheat, soy, dairy, or egg. Somehow, magically, they're amazing! Don't believe me? Her cookbook, BabyCakes Covers The Classics, is a continuous bestseller! When I went to BabyCakes NYC for the first time in 2009, I went for the cupcakes, but ended up falling completely in love with their chocolate chip sandwich cookies. They were two large chocolate chip cookies sandwiching candy-colored frosting in a way that was equally light and indulgent. What I love is that, in this aforementioned cookbook, Erin gave fans the recipe for making this at home. She even stopped off on Martha Stewart's television show to demonstrate! Try this out at home, as this is a terrific recipe on its own or used as a base to freestyle with your own different flavors. The frosting for this one will be vanilla, but in the past, BabyCakes has offered ones with mint flavor or peanut butter inside. This recipe makes 36 cookie sandwiches, so even if you steal a bunch for yourself (which you'll want to), there's still plenty to share! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ BabyCakes NYC's Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies For the Cookies: 1 cup coconut oil 6 Tablespoons homemade applesauce or store-bought unsweetened applesauce 1 teaspoon salt 2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract 1 and 1/4 cups evaporated cane juice 2 cups Bob's Red Mill gluten-free all-purpose baking flour 1/4 cup flax meal 1 teaspoon baking sode 1 and 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum 1 cup vegan chocolate chips For the Frosting: 3/4 cup rice milk or unsweetened soy milk 3/4 cup dry rice milk powder or dry soy milk powder 1 tablespoon coconut flour 1/4 cup agave nectar 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups coconut oil, melted and cooled 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1. Preheat the oven to 325. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, applesauce, salt, vanilla and cane juice. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda and xanthan gum. Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir until a grainy dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough. 3. Using a melon baller, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the portions 1 inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread. Bake the cookies on the center rack for 15 minutes, rotating the sheets 180 degrees after 9 minutes. The finished cookies will be crisp on the edges and soft in the center. 4. Let the cookies stand on the sheets for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack and cool completely before frosting. 5. In the jar of a blender or bowl of a food processor, combine soy milk, soy powder, coconut flour, agave nectar, and vanilla. Blend ingredients for 2 minutes. With machine running, slowly add oil and lemon juice, alternating between the two until both are fully incorporated. 6. Frost the underside of a cookie and sandwich it with the other. Optionally, roll these cookies in sprinkles or miniature chocolate chips!
