painted two man crosscut saw blade

painted two man crosscut saw blade

Description:

A two man crosscut saw blade that was hand painted upside down by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The painted saw blade depicts seven logging men with some either using two man saws on various logs and others helping out, while another is chopping down a tree with an axe (far right). The colours of the illustration have blues, greens, browns, tan, apricot, white, grays, and orange tinges. The type of two man crosscut saw would be a lance tooth, due to the patterning and shape of the teeth on the blade (pointed ends). On the other side of the saw blade reads "Simonds - Canada Saw Co. LTD. - Montreal - Toronto - Vancouver", the company name that manufactured the saw blade. The company was first found in January 1906 after The Simonds Mfg. Co. bought another company of The Canada Saw Co. located in Montreal, Quebec, and was renamed The Simonds Canada Saw Co. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.

painted copper metal disc

painted copper metal disc

Description:

A hand painted copper metal disc that was painted by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. The painted illustration would be considered as "folk art". The floral patterning is represented as "rosemaling", or also known as "rose painting/decorative painting", in which it is from Norwegian origin and is a mix between Dutch painting and traditional folk art. It was named "rosemaling/rose painting/decorative painting" since during the 17th to 18th century, various artists painted roses and other types of flowers. The three main styles of this specific folk art are called Telemark, Hallingdal, and Rogaland, named after the regions of where they were formed. This particular patterning on the metal disc would be Rogaland. Folk art encompasses art produced from an indigenous culture or by peasants or other laboring tradespeople. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative rather than purely aesthetic. It is characterized by a naïve style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed. Folk art mainly expresses cultural identity, such as sharing community values, by using various materials of wood, clay, metal, paper, and other resources. It reflects traditional art forms of diverse community groups of ethnic, tribal, religious, occupational, geographical, age- or gender-based, who identify with each other and society at large.
