9780786498062: The Sand Art Bottles of Andrew Clemens

The sand art bottles of Andrew Clemens (1857-1894) draw reactions of astonishment and disbelief. Deaf from age six, Clemens began creating his bottles at an early age, selling them from his home and in local shops in his hometown of McGregor, Iowa. He later developed his craft to an extraordinarily high degree, using tempered hickory sticks with specially designed tips to deposit and position naturally colored grains of sand inside chemists' bottles. Many since have attempted to duplicate his technique but his works of art stand unmatched.

Clemens made possibly thousands of sand art bottles during his short life but relatively few remain. Some of these are in museums, and many are in private collections. Those that occasionally appear at auctions sell for thousands of dollars. This book covers Clemens's life and work, with dozens of detailed photographs of his intricate designs.

Descrizione libro McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. In the last quarter of the 19th century an amazing artist emerged. He turned out to be one of the greatest artists that most people have never heard of. Whenever people see even one of Andrew Clemens sand art bottles, they react with astonishment and disbelief. When they find out that he became completely deaf at the age of 5 years, they are even more intrigued to discover more about this mysterious man who died at the untimely age of 37 years. Amidst a country undergoing rapid expansion and change, Clemens retreated into his own silent world creating works of art that stand unmatched to this day. While it is thought that Clemens made hundreds if not thousands of bottles over his short life, relatively few remain. Many of these are in Museums, some are in private collections and the ones that rarely appear at auctions sell for thousands of dollars. Clemens overcoming his disability has been an inspiration to many who learn about him. He not only overcame a number of challenges but also thrived despite overwhelming odds. His sand art bottles were so unbelievable that many individuals in his time and thereafter have attempted to duplicate them.It has been said, by his contemporaries, that someone like Clemens is unlikely to ever surface again.
