Sheila Hicks: Apprentissages
15,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An American artist born in 1934 and based in Paris since 1964, Sheila Hicks has dedicated her life to the textiles and fibers she handles, sculpts, and glorifies in works both big and small. Her unique style gives shape to an international language, understandable by each of us, which is simultaneously tactile, emotional, and straightforward. Thanks to her profound mastery of technical craftsmanship and her rare aesthetic intuition, her artistic practice finds its equilibrium at the intersection of applied arts and contemporary art, proposing an idiosyncratic chromatic and formal vocabulary.This handbook accompanies her project for the 2016 Festival d'Automne in Paris. Entitled "Apprentissages" ("learning processes"), it develops as a manifold exhibition held successively in the classical architecture of the Musée Carnavalet, dedicated to the history of Paris, in several shop windows in different Parisian neighborhoods, and finally in the post-modernist black cube of the Théâtre des Amandiers-Nanterre. Gathering together a record of the site-specific installations, rare archive photographs, and documents, the book is built around an extensive conversation between Sheila Hicks and Clément Dirié about her life and work, her relationship with Paris, her methods of learning and sharing.Sheila Hicks' recent exhibitions include the 30th São Paulo Biennial (2012), the Whitney Biennial in New York (2014), the 20th Sydney Biennial, the Glasgow International Festival, and "Weaving_& We-2nd Triennial of Fiber Art" in Hangzhou (all 2016).Published with the Festival d'Automne à Paris.

Modification of Fibres for Technical Applications
128,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book deals with the physical and chemical modification of natural and synthetic fibres for technical applications. Natural fibres and synthetic fibres/ filaments are often inadequate to be used in technical textiles. The high level of moisture absorption of natural fibres, poor wettability by non-polar plastics, and insufficient adhesion between untreated fibres and the polymer matrix, result in poor properties in composites. Synthetic fibres often lack the required mechanical and thermal properties to be used for technical applications. The book will thus encompass methods to physically and chemically modify fibres for technical applications.

Textile Fabrics and Their Preparation for Dyeing
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

First published in1906, this book contains a classic guide to textiles, dealing specifically with various different fabrics and how they should be prepared and dyed. Written in simple, clear language and full of helpful illustrations and diagrams, 'Textile Fabrics and Their Preparation for Dyeing' is perfect for textile novices and DIY enthusiasts, and it would make for a wonderful addition to collections of related literature. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 - 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the 'do-it-yourself' book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: 'Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning' (1881), 'The Watch-Jobber's Handy Book' (1887), and 'Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them' (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Chemicals and Methods for Conservation and Rest...
277,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Before the 1970s, most information concerning the conservation and restoration of paintings, wood, and archaeological artefacts were focused on the history of the artefacts, previous attempts of conservation, and the future use of these artefacts. The technical methods of how the restoration and conservation were made were dealt with only very briefly. Today, sophisticated methods of scientific analysis such as DNA are common place, and this encourages conservators and scientists to work together to work out the development of new methods for analysis and conservation of artefacts. This book focuses on the chemicals used for conservation and restoration of various artefacts in artwork and archaeology, as well as special applications of these materials. Also the methods used, both methods for cleaning, conservation and restoration, as well as methods for the analysis of the state of the respective artefacts. Topics include oil paintings, paper conservation, textiles and dyes for them, archaeological wood, fossils, stones, metals and metallic coins, and glasses, including church windows.

3D Weaving
116,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

3D shaped fabrics are widely used for producing technical applications including textile composites, medical textiles, and protective textiles. Textile engineers and material scientists have developed 3D textile preforms for composites, which are becoming more popular in many areas due to their light weight, dimensional stability, and high strength properties. Architecture of a textile preform can vary from a simple planar sheet to complex 3D shell shapes. This book aims to exploit the potentials of conventional looms for producing dome-shaped fabrics for technical applications, such as protective helmet, aircraft seat, motorcycle seat, and bullet-proof vest for women. Second objective of this research is to develop methods for evaluating the dome effect of fabrics. A dome tester has been developed in the research with the capability of measuring the dome formability and also the fabric mouldability. The results of both evaluation methods for the dome formability revealed that loose fabric structures lead to better dome formability for all fabric types. The results also showed that increasing the number of layers for the multi-layer fabrics has produced less obvious dome effects.

Analytical Techniques in Materials Conservation
240,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The use of scientific techniques in materials conservation has expanded considerably in recent decades and there is a great deal of interest in identifying the materials used in culturally important objects. Of importance is a clear understanding of the state and mechanisms of degradation of objects. Of importance is a clear understanding of the state and mechanisms of degradation of objects susceptible to deterioration with time and exposure to environmental factors. In addition, awareness of the state of materials at a molecular level can provide valuable information for conservators, enabling them to decide on a conservation procedure. This book presents the extensive range of analytical techniques used by scientists that may be applied to heritage materials such as paintings, metals, sculptures, written material, natural materials, synthetic polymers, textiles, tone, ceramics and glass. An introductory chapter describes the types and chemistry of materials encountered in conservation. Chapters 2 to 10 provide a straightforward background to each of the common analytical techniques: * Basic identification techniques * Light examination and microscopy * Molecular spectroscopy * Atomic spectroscopy * X-ray techniques * Mass spectrometry * Chromatography and electrophoresis * Thermal and mechanical analysis * Nuclear methods An explanation of how an instrument works is provided without the excessive technical detail that can be overwhelming for the first-time user. The nature and size of a sample required for each technique is given as this is an important consideration in conservation. Additionally, for each technique, examples of the application of the method to specific types of heritage materials are provided, with the relevant literature references. This book will be a useful source of information for those with an interest in materials conservation. While it should prove an aid to those already working in this field, the book is also aimed at those entering the field who would like to know more about the analysis of heritage materials. An in-depth knowledge of chemistry, materials science or analytical chemistry is no assumed, so those without a strong background in these fields will be able to understand the scientific concepts presented.
