Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Collection comprises fieldwork documentation and exhibit materials created by the Oregon Arts Commission's Folk Art of the Oregon Country project, a survey and exhibition of Oregon folk artists and works of folk art from 1979-1980. Fieldwork materials include approximately 7000 photographs and fieldwork documentation by four fieldworkers documenting approximately 250 folk artists and works of folk art and architecture. Exhibit materials include 314 photographs of Oregon folk artists and works of folk art selected by Suzi Jones, the Oregon Arts Commission's Folk Art Coordinator, from this and other collections, notably the former Horner Collection at Oregon State University, for the catalog for the exhibition Webfoots and Bunchgrassers: Folk Art of the Oregon Country.

Fieldwork documentation includes: color slides; artist data sheets, containing information about the artist and a description of skills; photo logs, containing brief descriptions of photographs; artist release forms, signed by the artist; works of art sheets, containing brief descriptions of works of art or architecture; daily fieldwork logs and notes; and, in some instances, ephemera such as pamphlets, business cards, photographic prints, and news clippings. All fieldwork documentation is organized by fieldworker and by artist and work and bound with an artist index. Fieldworkers photographed folk arts in collections of several museums, historical societies, and businesses in Oregon.

Exhibit materials includes: photographs of folk artists and works of folk art and copies of the exhibition catalog. The exhibit Webfoots and Bunchgrassers: Folk Art of the Oregon Country was curated by Suzi Jones, the Oregon Arts Commission's Folk Art Coordinator, and displayed at the University of Oregon Museum of Art; the Oregon Historical Society Museum in Portland, Oregon; and the Renwick Gallery of the National Collection of Fine Arts, Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, D.C. The exhibit catalog includes sections on Native Americans, pioneers, buckaroos, and ethnic arts.

A1: Ida Lee - Hardanger embroidery, costume
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Lee was born in northern Norway on the island of Senja, but when she was she moved to the larger town of Trumso where she took classes in "stitchery" at a "finishing school." She said that most girls learned these sorts of hand work skills at schools like this. The things that they made were for their hope chests for their marriages, and all girls, not just the well to do did this. She and her parents came to America in 1906 , and went first of all to Wisconsin. They didn't like it much there--Mrs. Lee remembers that there were nothing but thunderstorms for two solid weeks. Her parents didn't like it much there either, and after two weeks they came to Salem. It was only two months after the San Francisco earthquake, and since Mrs. Lee and her family weren't real familiar with American geography, they were all afraid that they were off to a terrible place that would soon come tumbling apart. (Mrs. Lee recalls many stories from her childhood--like these--and has written many down.)When the family moved to America, Mrs. Lee's mother brought patterns (for embroidery and handwork) with her. Mrs. Lee obtained these patterns from her mother and has used them; some of the patterns are from the turn of the century. Bab, her mother used the patterns in America as well. An "Aid person" (connected with the WPA) located her mother (Inga Marie Hansen) in the thirties and she began teaching "stitchery" to adults in classes. The family lost their farm during the thirties, so about that time her father got ahold of some books end from them learned to construct three looms. He began to weave then, and Ida Lee's davenport (which is full of pillows in slide OFA79_DK_A1_020) has pillows that her father wove on top of it. Mrs. Hansen made quilts, too, Ida Lee says.As for Ida Lee herself, she continued to do stitchery when she was at home with her family. When she married and began to raise her own family she didn't do as much--although she did embroider the edges of baby sheets, the borders of tablecloths. It was after her children grew that she had the time to do a lot of Hardanger work and other stitchery.She has taught Hardanger stitchery to classes of women, and in fact, some of her pieces are designed especially for teaching--see OFA79_DK_A1_017. This piece (A1_017) was designed as a sampler both to help teach different stitches and to display the different stitches. She keeps it framed on her living room wall. This particular sampler was invented by Mrs. Lee but the stitches that she uses on it are all stitches that she learned from her mother. She gets both patterns and ideas from various sources--from her mother's work, which she often refers to and copies, from her mother's old patterns (Nordisk Mønster-Tidende), from contemporary pattern books, and from her own head, and by referring to other works or pieces of Hardanger which she copies or draws from.Most of the work that Ida Lee does is given away as gifts; two of the pieces that she is most proud of she has in her home (skirt: OFA79_DK_A1_001-009) (tablecloth: OFA79_DK_A1_021-022)OFA79_DK_A1_001 to 014 were shot in TRI-X. The first three shots (A1_001-003) are of Ida Lee and a piece of Hardanger embroidery that is in process. It will be about 10" by 6" when it is finished, but it shows how threads are counted and pulled from a piece of cloth, and how stitching is done around the remaining threads. This piece is being done on red cotton.OFA79_DK_A1_004 & 005 document another piece of work in progress. It will be 10" by 12" long when it is finished. The pattern was taken from a contemporay pattern book that Mrs. Lee ma ed away to North Dakota for.OFA79_DK_A1_006 to A1_009 are photographs of the skirt that is Mrs. Lee's "pride and joy." It is a traditional Norwegian skirt with Hardanger embroidery as a border/panel. Ida Lee made this after a skirt that her mother had worn. She used a pattern that her mother had clipped out from a turn of the century Norwegian pattern book. She wears the long skirt to parties and special occasions and always receives lots of compliments because it is so special.OFA79_DK_A1_010 to 014 are shots of a traditional Norwegian costume that Ida Lee made as a copy of her mother's. Probably her mother had bought her costume in Norway before coming to the Us, Ida Lee thinks. Ida Lee copied the beadwork necessary on the belt by using a toy Indian bead belt maker loom that her children owned. OFA79_DK_A1_016 is a color slide of the same thing.OFA79_DK_A1_015 is a color slide of one of the old turn of the century patterns that Ida Lee's mother brought to America, and that Ida sometimes still uses. It is Nordisk Mønster-Tidende (Norse pattern or pattern-book or so) from 1906. It can be used for many different kinds of patterns at once--i.e. you followed a different set of lines according to whether you wanted to embroider a dress, a blouse, etc.OFA79_DK_A1_018 & 019 are slides of a sixsided piece of Hardanger work that Mrs Lee was very proud of. Her children had a six sided. coffee table and wanted a piece of Hardanger for it; Mrs. Lee decided to make one. The trouble was that some of the sides had to be on the bias then, and it seemed impossible to get the square cutwork and stitching that is Hardanger to go evenly around six sides. She finally figured out how to manage it, though, so she's real proud of it. She points out that if you don't look at it from the right angle it seems somehow uneven, and that's because of the oddness of the shape. Though the shape is unusual, the Hardanger work itself is traditional. It is about 12" to a side, about diameter, and was just made this year in 1979.OFA79_DK_A1_018 & 019 are slides of a sixsided piece of Hardanger work that Mrs Lee was very proud of.

A2: Mildred Brockapp - embroidery, crochet work, basket
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMildred Brockappp was born in a sod shanty in Colorado in 1924; her family moved to Oregon when she was young, and as a child in Southern and Central Oregon she began to learn different kinds of handwork. Her father's mother was "fastidious and particular" and it was this grandmother who taught her to do cross stitch. She still has some of the first things that she ever made--an embroidered pot holder with the picture of a dog embroidered from a stamped design. She made it in Merrill, Oregon (Klamath Cty.) in about 1931 when she was about 7 or 8. (See OFA79_DK_A2_001 & 002) OFA79_DK_A2_020 is a sampler msde in 1934 from a stamped pattern ("Here sit ye down...").Most of the articles that Mrs. Brockapp has around the house were made for her kids. There are some crocheted collars which she saw pictures of in a magazine. Without a pattern she made some-- one for her baby, one for herself. She was about 25 then. (OFA79_DK_A2_003 & 004) At about the same time she made many other crocheted doilies, (See OFA79_DK_A2_005 to 012) Some of the doilies were patterned after pieces that her mother had, or after pictures that she saw in Coats and Clarks books. She'd examine the piece or picture and figure out for herself how to make it up. Down in Grants Pass, where they were living, Mildred Brockapp sewed clothes for her kids. She also made some quilts and an appliqued quilt with roses and flowers, which took her about four years to finish, is still her "pride and joy." (OFA79_DK_A2_013- to 016). Her husband left her about this time, and she went to work. The handwork necessarily became less plentiful. When her kids began their marriages and started having their own kids she made quilts for each of their kids' beds. After she'd finished baby bed quilts for all of her grandkids she decided that with some beautiful soft pink and white material that she had she would make herself a quilt. What she made was a coverlet with an embroidered bunch of flowers in the middle. (OFA79_DK_A2_017 to 019) She made this coverlet in Grant's Pass, about 1964.There were a few other hand made objects in use around Mrs. Brockapp's apartment. She's beem interested in different kinds of art and craft projects that she sees in magazines or in friends' homes. She has some placques with decorative designs made of bread, for example, on her walls. Also on her walls, in the living room, are two samplers. One was the first one she'd ever done in cross-stitch (previously mentioned = OFA79_DK_A2_020), the other was done in the 1950s. ("Good books to read..." OFA79_DK_A2_021) The pattern for this later cross-stitched sampler was made by a traditional tracing nethod. That is, to put a pattern on the piece of material that Mrs. Brockapp wanted to embroider, she first took a silver spoon and rubbed it in her hair, against her scalp. This got oil on the back of the spoon. Then she rubbed the spoon back over her own piece of material--which she had placed on top of another already embroidered sampler. The bottom pattern is transferred to the top because the oil sticks to the places on the top cloth where texture on the bottom sticks up. She leamed how to do this kind of pattern tracing as a kid, and said that she was always sure to be able to copy off a patten like this because she always had oily hair--but anyone can do it.Another hand made object from years ago is still in use--a basket that Mrs. Brockapp made in Merril in about 1937. A lady came around to the schools down there when Mrs. Brockapp was young, and she taught all of the schoolkids who wanted to leam how to make baskets. (This lady may have been an Indian, or may have learned from the Indians.) The basket, woven of flexible split wood fiber of some kind, was turned into a purse in later years when Mrs. Brockapp sewed a closabIe cloth drawstring top onto the basket. She said "That was quite the controversial purse I carried around." And now, the basket is used as a container for clothespins.Mrs. Brockapp would be willing to lend any of her handworked pieces.

A3: Victor Rosene - woodcarving, wood figures
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Rosene was born in Sweden in 1883.Victor Rosene's father had a furniture shop, and would have liked his nine sons to follow him in the furniture-making business, but of all of his brothers, Victor was the only one with artistic talent. While just a boy in Sweden, he learned cabinetwork, turning, carving and finishing. He was able to draw anything, and to design anything, even when young. He used to pull tricks with his artistic ability in school and for his friends. His mother spun and wove cloth, and Victor figures that he inherited his talents from both parents.His third oldest brother had emigrated to Portland when Victor was only a year and a half old, and when he was he was 19 he came over to Portland, too, and began to work for his brother, who had a sash and door factory. Victor didn't like working there--he felt that the work wasn't very "high grade." In the days "there was a terrible lot of turning going on" and he got a job working as a turner. He continued in that factory for four or five years, then, in 1913 he started his own business. He had a partner, who he eventually bought out; they employed up to 65 men. He quit manufacturing in the depression; when the war broke out he went into designing. Victor Rosene always stresses his high standards. He did beautiful work, quality work--some of the oldest wooden store interiors in Portland were designed and built by him. Griffin's Cafeteria still has some of his work in it.Victor Rosene still carves--and when he picks up his chisel he turns out statues and carving that are finely shaped--Madonnas, a blacksmith at work (created from a memory that Victor had of such a man in the Swedish village he grew up in = OFA79_DK_A3_004-005). But when he picks up a jacknife and "just whittles," his style is markedly different.He paints these figures bright colors. He has made several country stores with roofs of plastic and fronts that open up to reveal shelves and shopkeeper. (OFA79_DK_A3_007 to 009) He also has a set of three figures--almost like caricatures--carved from phillipine mahogany with a jacknife. The figures were carved while he sat at home by the table; his daughter Eleanor Lofton (who lives next door) painted them. They were made about fifteen years ago in 1964. (These, I think, along with the blacksmith would be nice for the exhibit, and Mr. Rosene would be glad to lend us anything.) (3 figures = OFA79_DK_A3_001 to 003)He's made all kinds of innovative creations--from marionettes to a painting with sound effects (which he worked out with his daughter who painted an ocean scene. Victor figured out how to wire it so that the sounds of waves are heard when a switch is flicked.)

A4: Margie Brokaw - Klostersom embroidery
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Brokaw was born in Portland, Oregon in 1921.Margie has only started to do "ethnic" work recently, although both she and her mother had done crocheting and knitting and sewing for years. Some years ago, a girlfriend of Margie's went to Norway. When she was there, an aunt gave her a pillow done in wool klöstersøm, and she brcught the pillow back with her. Margie saw it and liked it, and when the girlfriend learned how to do klöstersøm, Margie learned from her. She liked doing it since her doctor had told her to be careful of straining her eyes--and hardanger work demanded a lot from your eyes, so Margie had had to give it up. As it turned out, klöstersøm wasn't any easier, but Margie kept at it anyway. She started doing it in 1969, and has just kept doing it. Mostly she gives away her work as gifts. She figures that it's too expensive to get your money out of it--that is, for all the time that you put into the work, the price that you'd receive for a piece just wouldn't repay the effort. Sometimes, Margie buys kits for patterns, but usually she copies patterns from books, adapts knitting patterns or pictures that she likes. One of the pillows that she made has a design like a piece of rosemaling, because she liked that kind of design. She's gotten involved in teaching klöstersøm, and she travels around to various shows.I saw Margie at the Astoria Scandanavian Festival--she had a booth there, and was selling little yarn pom-poms, and animals as well as displaying her pillows. Margie has been going to this festival for years and, like the other exhibitors, knows both habitual festival goers and festival participants.Margie's daughter is real interested in the klöstersøm that her mother does, and has begun to do some herself. (OFA79_DK_A4_003-004) Besides Margie's pillows (OFA79_DK_A4_001-003), she has on display in her living room a sampler that demonstrates different hardanger stitches, made about 1978. (OFA79_DK_A4_010)Vesla Harris, a Norwegian rosemaler who lives in Astoria, told me that klöstersøm is a recent revival-type phenomenon--started around the 1950s when weaving traditional patterns had pretty much died out. People started doing the same sort of designs with a needle--a much easier way, according to Vesla. It is, she says, an imitation of traditional Norwegian weaving.

A5: Merrill Farrington - woodcarving, wagon-building, wheelright work
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Farrington was born in Cook, Minnesota in 1937.All of his life, Merrill Farrington has been crazy about Percherons; now he's building, full-time, wagons for the draft horses to pull in shows, parades and the like. He restores old wagons, as well, and the skills that he learned from his previous occupations as auto mechanic, machinist, welder, etc. have all been put to use now that he's doing something he really loves. He's only recently tried going at this full-time--switched completely over within the last year. Previously, working on old wagons and building new ones had been a spare time abiding passion--as was woodcarving. Merrill had gone around to the few old-time blacksmiths in the area, to learn how to do fittings and tires for wheels, and other fine points. He also knows all of the people in the area who have any association with draft horses, teams or wagons. He's been wagon building for about six years, now.He's also been woodcarving since he was a small child. He always admired Ed Quigley's work and tried to pattern his own work after Quigley's. Since he grew up, he's met Quigley who paid Merrill's work a great complimmt (feels Merrill) when he said that he figured their carvings were so similar that people couldn't tell their work apart. So that there wouldn't be any confusion, Merrill began branding his carvings with his initials. Like Quigley, Merrill carves western motifs and uses burls, trying to carve things that suit the grain of the wood. He's real involved in woodcarving as well--belongs to the Western Woodcarvers Association. And he is quite articulate about the beauty of wood, the skill involved in woodcarving, and the high artistry of it all. He's gotten into lots of argmunents with so-called fine artists who he figures don't apprecate working in wood. He says he'd like to challenge any of them--he figures that he could do what they do, but that they could never do what he does with wood.Some of his carvings of loggers might be especially appropriate for the exhibit. (OFA79_DK_A5_011) His wagons--the ones that he's made--are around the county--mostly in the barns of men who are interested in draft horses and display them.He'd be willing to lend any of his carvings; he doesn't own any of his wagons.

A6: Mary Pusateri Koehler - embroidery, crochet work
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMary Koehler (nee Pusateri) was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1922.Mary Koehler's mother, Lena Bova Pusateri, was born in Tirminie, Sicily on November 1, 1899. She, and the other daughters in the Bova family,including her older sister Maria, grew up learning to sew, to embroider. They all made things for their hope chests when they were young, for their home and family when they were older. Maria Bova embroidered initialed pillow shams and nightgown when she was engaged to be married. The marriage never came about and she gave these articles to her younger sister Lena (see OFA79_DK_A_025 to 026; ) Later, when she married another man, she wanted the beautifully embroidered articles back--by then, Lena had children--one of them, Mary Pusateri Koehler, owned the pieces. Somehow, although all the parties concerned lived in America, Maria never recovered the handiwork. And Lena Bova did equally beautiful work--Mary Koehler owns much of it, now. It includes embroidered sheets, pillowcases, crocheted doilies bedspreads and carriage covers, and the nightgown that she made for her wedding night. The nightgown was made in Sicily; most of the other articles were made in Portland for her daughter Mary's family as they grew. See OFA79_DK A6_002 to 007; 013 to 024)Mary Pusateri Koehler learned how to embroider and crochet when she was a child. Her mother, Lena Bova Pusateri, taught her. When she lived in Chicago, Mary used to go to a woman who knew how to transfer patterns for embroidering. Mary would choose the pattern that she wanted. The woman would take a tissue stencil and ink it onto your piece of material. Also, this woman would make holes for hemstitching in your fabric. Some of the pillowcases that Mary embroidered after she moved to Portland were stamped by this woman in Chicago, and brought back to Portland. Mary Koehler has embroidered many many sets of pillowcases and sheets. Each of her children was given a set or more for their wedding present, as were many relatives and friends. Mary still has a cedar trunk full of embroidered pillow cases. She feels that these days, brides don't care too much about this hand made stuff--they'd just as soon have sonething store-bought, she figures.So, Mary Pusateri Koehler learned handwork as a child from her mother--just as her mother in turn had learned. Both generations, both women, did their work for family and friends. Some techniques changed. Mary does not do as much of the "French embroidery" as her mother did, nor does she embroider with white thread on white cloth, as her mother did. She paid a Iocal woman in their Chicago neighborhood to stamp the patterns of her choice on her fabric; later, in Portland, she purchased stamped fabric or reproduced, on her own, previous patterns that she liked a lot. She doesn't come forth with her own work--only after the pieces that her mother and aunt had made had been displayed, and only after I asked her directly whether or not she herself did any work, did she bring out any of her pieces.I'm not sure that there is anything particularly Italian about the Bova/Pusateri handwork. It seems, all of this embroidery and crocheted pillowcase work, typical of the "fancywork" done by women from the turn of the century through the forties, at least. Maybe it's representative of a European "popular" (rather than "folk" or "ethnic" or "regional" tradition.) Maybe, too, crocheted doilies and embroidered pillowcases--items that decorate, embellish functional objects used in the home--are a kind of status item. First, a woman needed to be sure that her family had clothes, sweaters, socks, etc. enough. Then, she might be able to make these decorative pieces. Also, it seems that these crocheted and embroidered pieces are public items--given as gifts, displayed in the home. Not absolutely necessary, they make a house homelike, decorated, beautified; they show off the woman's handwork. Maybe.

A7: Byron McBride - woodcarving, metal sculpture
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. McBride was born in Delaware, Ohio.Mr. McBride has been whittling since he was a kid. Every year for Christmas, his father would give him (and his brothers) pocket knives. Byron used to play cowboys and Indians in the woods all the time; even when little he used to like to whittle things out.I met Mr. McBride at a meeting of the Western Woodcarvers Association in Portland. At each month's meeting, members bring in their latest creations, setting the works out on tables for display before and after the business meeting. I spoke at the meeting, explaining my project. Many self-proclaimed "folk artists" came up afterwards and introduced themselves to me. Mr. McBride was not one of these people. The whittled man and woman that I saw on one of the tables there, however, struck me as the best in the hall. I inquired about who had made the couple and was introduced to Mr. McBride, who was very modest--He figured that he "just whittled" , while some of the other people there "really carved."Like many of the other men there, Mr. McBride sells his carvings. Some are for sale at a shop called The Yankee Peddlar, and while he can't get nearly as much for one one of his carvings as he can for one of his metal sculptures (though the carvings take many times as long to do and require much more skill, according to Mr. M.) he spends more time doing wood carving. And he's been doing woodcarving for his family for a long time--since his kids were kids, and now for his kids' kids. Down in his basement workshop are drawers full of heads for the characters he carves. He'll make the heads first, whenever he thinks of a kind of character, or a face he feels like whittling. He makes dozens of these, and tosses them into the drawer. Eventually he may get around to making a body to suit one of the heads. If he's not satisfied, he just mixes and matches bodies and heads until he has a whole character that he likes. In time he may tire of the character and make changes or switch head or body again. Bodies that he particularly likes he may duplicate by carving out rough "blanks" in pretty much the same shape--later he whittles them down and finishes them. But in the meantime, blanks and heads fill drawers in the workshop. Come Christmastime, generations of McBride kids have wound up downstairs playing with the wooden heads, bodies and completed people. They'd open their new Christmas presents-but it was never very long before they abandoned the new toys and played with the hundreds of preferred wooden characters. And of course, they didn't wait for Christmas--both children and grandchildren always loved to play with Mr. McBride's carvings whenever they visited.Family is not the only audience--Mr. McBride has been entertaining his fellow workers with his carvings for a long time, too. When he worked for the telephone company he carved "portraits" of his fellow workers. His carvings of the bosses who slept while the workers slaved (See OFA79_DK_A7_007 and 008) and of fellow workers who were always a bit sloppy (OFA79_DK_A7_019 & 020) from the shipyards were always popular--and fellow workers always wanted copies. Mr. McBride made carvings for his co-workers, sometimes sold them. Once, when the telephone company was having some kind of display, Mr. McBride carved a whole series of carvings which satirically depicted life in the phone company.His favorite carvings are those of "western" characters. He has always admired their "character," in fact, from the time that he was a kid. He has carvings of cowboys, outdoors types, immigrants, drunks (including a saloon scene that is always being added to), and he has even carved a self portrait. When he displays his work at meetings of the Western Woodcarvers Association or other fairs or exhibits, he brings along the self portrait--a carving of Mr. McBride, hunched over, carving--with a workbench behind him, complete even to the vise on the workbench. (OFA79 DK_A7_001 to 003)His favorite carving is of a couple square dancing. It was carved from a solid piece of geluton, and Mr. McBride thinks it is more like "real carving" than his other things. (OFA79_DK_A7_009-010.)Mr. McBride would be willing to loan any of his pieces. They are all wonderful.

A9: Salme Soot - leatherwork, doll making
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Soot was born in Viljande, Estonia in 1905.Mrs. Soot learned to do different kinds of handwork, fancywork, when she was young, but most of her possessions were lost during the times that she and her family had to leave their home because of war. She was in a displaced persons camp in Germany after the war; there she learned how to do leatherwork. Another Estonian woman taught her to work and stamp the leather. When she came to America about thirty years ago, she continued to do a great deal of leatherwork; she gave the photo albums, wallets, folders away to family and friends as gifts. Mostly she made things of leather during her first two years in Oregon; she didn't have as much free time after that. The designs on the leather are traditional Estonian patterns that Mrs. Soot remembers or looks up in books.With a number of other Estonian women four or five years ago, Mrs. Soot began to make Estonian dolls--dolls made completely by hand and dressed in traditional Estonian costume. All the skirts, belts, embroidered blouses and headpieces are exactly as in the regional costume, and they are all made in precisely the same way that a real size costume would be made. Most of the women made a doll dressed in the costume from their native region. One woman (Mrs. Kants) (A23) made all the heads, figuring out how to construct them from paper maché and trying to give each doll a different personality--a personality typical of the region (or stereotypical of the region...). Anhther woman (Mrs. Konks A10), who weaves traditional belts in Estonian patterns, wove tiny belts for each doll who needed one, and skirts as well.Each woman did the embroidery and sewing for her own doll. The dolls have been sent to different places in the country for exhibits. When the local Estonian organization has any kind of function, often, the dolls have been displayed as well.See A23 through A28 for slides of the other doll-makers, who were invited to bring their dolls and to have tea together at Mrs. Soot's so that I could meet them all and photograph all of the dolls. A picture of all of the ladies is OFA79_DK_A27_003Mrs. Soot's dolls (A9_021-022) are dressed in costumes of the regions Röngu (021) and Kadrina-Ilumae (022)

A10: Helga Konks - weaving, doll making
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Konks learned how to weave from a woman named Mrs. Martinson in the D.P. camps in Germany in the 1940s. Mrs. Martinson taught home crafts before the war, and was Estonian, so what she taught Mrs. Konks was somewhat familiar. Her father learned to make a loom at the same time and the same place. Most of the work that she has now was made within the last 10 years. She has given most of it away and can't do more right now because her hand was broken recently.

A11: Ben Kasabuchi - Sumie calligraphy, silk flower making, origami flower
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Kasabuchi was born in Shiga-Ken, Japan in 1899.Ben Kasubuchi learned calligraphy in school in Japan, just like other kids. He excelled in it--and he won some of the contests that schools and districts would have. When he was in the sixth grade, he was the best writer in his whole district, and beat out even the older kids. He was chosen to represent the Shiga-ken schools. This artistic talent just came naturally, he says. Here now, in Oregon, he doesn't write much--not as many letters as he used to. Everyone does come to him for signs, whenever they need them. He can make signs in English as well as Japanese, but it is primarily for his Japanese signs that the Japanese community comes to him. His son has learned from him this skill. As well, from the time that he was young he knew how to do origami, and makes butterflies and other things--Also, he makes flowers of silk. He has given his wife many corsages of these silk flowers, and the house is decorated with vases full of silk irises, roses, lilacs, etc. Also, he has won prizes for his poetry.

A13: Steven Saller - shoemaking
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Saller was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1911.In Hungary, Steven Saller says, you learn either how to make soles and heels, or you learn how to make uppers. He was one of the very very few men who learned how to do both--excellently. He learned shoemaking from his father, grandfather, grandmother and brothers, all of whom were craftspeople in Hungary. He came to America in 1952--to Los Angeles, where he worked as a shoemaker. In 1973 he came to Portland.He's a genius with shoes--he specializes in making orthopedic shoes, and he is full of narratives testifying to how he helped people to walk with his shoes. PeopIe who had not been able to stand or to walk, people who doctors had given up on, --all were able to walk in the special shoes that Steven Saller designed for them. He's performed many miracles like this, and laments that there is noone to take his place, no-one to help his customers when he is gone. He designs special lasts by tracing his patients' feet and making special plaster of them. He's especially proud of some of the difficult cases that he's helped. He's an incredible craftsman, has a dedicated and grateful clientele, and explains his craft easily and well.The slides document how Mr. Saller bastes the leather to the sole or cast with nails (OFA79_DK_A13_007 to 008); a work shoe made for Mr. Saller's son (009 and001) a boot made for a man who wanted an "Italian style boot;" plaster casts (012, 013, 014, 015, 016); sketches and tracings of feet from Mr. S's order book (014).

A14: Suki Ingram - Temari, thread and paper objects
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Ingram was born in Kyushu Shi, Japan in 1930.When Mrs. Ingram was a little girl, she used to play with temari at the house of her great grandmother. It was her great grandmother who taught her, at about age five, to make the wound balls. Also, when Suki was about nine, she stayed for a time with her grandmother. There as well, Suki watched temari being made, and made some herself. Traditionally, termari were made of the string used to sew a kimono together. When the kimono was washed it was taken completely apart, and the string was saved by being wrapped into a ball. The wrapping of these balls was done in a decorative way, in patterns; this decorative aspect began to predominate until temari were made which were not from kimono thread, but from other colored threads. In Japan, silk threads used to be used, and Mrs. Ingram has brought, bought and had send to her many packages of Japanese thread. She also uses plain embroidery thread and thread on hand. As a base for her temari, she is likely to use anything on hand--a rubber ball found in the street, old tennis balls, or new styrofoam. Old socks can also be used. Some balls will bounce; others are purely decorative.In 1970, Mrs. Ingram moved to Kwajalein, Marshall Islands. She was at a loss for something to do, and so she started making lots of temari--although she had made an occasional temari during the years since she was a child. There, she began showing other Japanese women how to make the balls. When she came to Eugene, in 1975, she continud to show interested peopIe how to make temari. She has been asked to teach classes in temari making in various places, but she doesn't want to do any teaching, because she feels that her English is not good enough. She is glad to show anyone who wants to learn, and has had many women over to her own home so as to teach them.Mrs. Ingram makes most of her temari between September and Christmas. She starts, in September (and in her spare time) and usually makes ten or more temari which she gives away as Christmas presents. During the year, though, Mrs. Ingram is likely to make a temari for a present--often if someone admires them, they are given one as a gift.It takes Mrs. Ingram about an hour to make a temari--her hands fly as she wraps a ball. It takes three or four hours--at least--for a hovice to learn. There are two basic methods of making a temari--either by sewing the threads down, or simply by wrapping the threads. Both methods require the same preliminary steps. The slides document these preliminary steps--Mrs. Ingram began to show Miko Toelken and me how to make temari on 2 July 1979, our second visit. First, we began by wrapping styrofoam balls (about 7 inches in diameter) with ordinary sewing thread until the styrofoam was entirely covered. This took up one roll (small) of thread. (OFA79_DK_A14_020. to 026) Next, the ball is marked. This is done by locating a single pin anywhere on the ball, by measuring the diameter of the ball, and by placing a second pin exactly opposite first pin. (027 to 031) Now the pins are used as markers for dividing the ball into sections. Some pattems demand an even number of sections; others demand an odd number. The most complicated patterns can use upwards of 23 segments. Ours were divided into eight sections by sticking a needle threaded with metallic thread through the ball until it protruded at the first pin. Then the thread is wound around the ball so that it passes the other pin on the way. A second pass of thread is done so that the ball is divided into four equal sections, (032 to .45) and then into eight sections. The metallic thread is then secured by a stitch into the ball. This was as far as we got in our temari making. Had we continued we would have used colored silk thread which we would have wound in circles. This part is fairly complicated, since different colored threads are woven, essentially, past each other. It is vey much like weaving on a sphere--a different pattern results according to how threads are placed, and when. The metallic thread is used as a marker--colored silk threads are either sewn or wound from points on the metallic lines to other points.Mrs. Ingram makes other things with silk threads, too, such as a six sided silk thread covered shape wrapped in stripes--not patterns. The form of these are made from folded rectangles. This is origami wrapped in thread. (OFA79_DK_A14_013 to 016.) Other origami that she makes includes picture frames made from the silver paper that comes in cigarette packages (OFA79_DK_A14_018 & 019.) OFA79_DK_A14_017)shows Mrs. Ingram's box of silk threads.Finished temari are OFA79_DK_A14_001 to 012 and 020.

A15: John Geisler - willow basket making
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Geisler was born in Mount Vernon, Oregon in 1904.Over twenty years ago, when he and his wife lived on a farm in Hopewell, Mr. Geisler became interested in basketmaking. His wife belonged to an Extension group, and through it had learned to weave baskets with cane. When his wife started doing this sort of basketwork, Mr. Geisler was reminded of an article that he had read in a local paper some years before about an old Russian at Banks raised willow, made baskets and sold them. The Russian had employed local children to peel the willow stalks after he had boiled them. Mr. Geisler decided to go over to Banks and see if the man was still there. The Russian had died, but Mr. Geisler found the place where he had lived. The new owners of the property had two or three tons of boiled willow stalks stored up in sheds, just taking up room, as far as they were concerned. They also had a few acres still planted in willow. Mr. Geisler bought some of the boiled willow, and took himself some "starts" of what he learned was commonly called "Polish basket willow." He set out his cuttings in Hopewell, where they lived then, and got out some books on basketmaking. The book Willow Basketry by an Englishman was a great help. Once he got started making willow baskets, he just got hooked. There are lots of other ways of making baskets, and lots of other materials to make baskets of, he knows, but says that "Willow is my dish."When they moved to Salem from their farm, Mr. Geisler took some willow with him and transplanted it to a field behind his house, where he tends it now. He makes his baskets in a corner of his garage, and has need of only a few tools for scraping and peeling and bending the stalks of boiled willow. (See OFA79_DK_A15_001-011; 017-022; 026-031. for work area, willow field, tools.) The tools that he uses are a vise, a knife for cutting the willow, 2 awls, side cutters, and a home made skein splitter (made from direction in the Willow Basketry book.) He also uses a tape measure, a break (a bent piece of wire, folded more or less into a "V" through which he pulls a piece of willow until the fiber is pliable) and a plane (which he fastens in the vise and pulls his willow strands across). He can be seen shaving a piece of split willow on this plane (which is handmade by him) in OFA79_DK_A15_006-007. He is actually splitting the willow in OFA79_DK_A15_006-007.He has learned to make several shapes of baskets. The Willow Basketry book was his initial inspiration, but he has made baskets in different shapes after the different baskets that has seen in people's homes or around. The color of the basket depends on when the willow is cut. If it is cut in the spring when the sap is running,then peeled at that time, it will be white. If it is cut and peeled in the fall, the willow will be brown.The following baskets were photographed: a white willow basket with a handle (18"x17"x12") (photos 012 & 013); 17"x16"X12" basket made in imitiation of an Indian basket owned by a lady in Lincoln (014); 14"x13"x9" Italian "Venetian" basket made in around 1970 (015 & 016); 26"x20"x10" clothes basket (023); 18"x13"x13" picnic basket (024); 16"x9 1/2" round basket (025); 25"x18"x13" clothes basket made in what Mr. Geisler calls the "French slew" weave (032-038).

A16: Calliope Phoutrides - making stefanos
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Phoutrides was born in Athens, Greece in 1898.Presbytera learned handwork as a child, and just grew up learning that if you needed something, you made it. When the women here in Portland at the Holy Trinity Church were in need of the traditional headpieces worn by both bride and groom in wedding ceremonies--and when it was impossible to order them by mail from the source that had been used in earlier years--Mrs. Phoutrides said that she would make them. The women had come to her with their problem, and, after all, she had seen the things for years, and knew what they were like well enough. She went to the sorts of stores that supply florist shops with artificial orange blossoms and ribbons, and made the stefana--two white crowns of orange blossoms and leaves, linked with white ribbon, She also made two little boutonieres or corsages of the same material, and two additional decorative ribbons with blossoms which would be attached to the candles carried in the service. During the wedding ceremony, the crowns are switched--that is the bride takes her crown from off of her head and places it on her husband's head and vice versa. The ribbons keeps the crowns attached all the time, as well.Since the first stefano, Mrs. Phoutrides has made many many more. She is now not only the source of supply for the Holy Trinity Church, but for Greeks all over the country. She sends her stefanas as far away as North Carolina, where a Greek book shop and gift store carries her work. She now obtains her materials mail order from a number of different places. This way she gets just the right kind of orange blossoms and leaves and ribbons--and the right kind of wire to wrap the ribbon around.While the stefanos might not be appropriate for an exhibit of folk art, they certainly are an important part of Greek tradition and represent one of the most active traditions occuring within the Portland Greek community. It's particularly interesting, for example, that in Greece, people made stefanos of real orange blossoms and leaves. Here in America, it has become the accepted thing to make them out of artificial materials. Even so, Mrs. Phoutrides, who remembers the real orange blossom stefanos, is very particular about the materials that she uses. She makes several kinds of stefana--that is, from several kinds of orange blossoms and leaves--three are photographed--but they must all be lifelike and look just right. Anyway, she is a lovely lady, would be a good demonstrator and a wonderful guide to Greek traditions in America--especially traditional cooking.

A17: Kiuda Ouchida - woodcarving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Ouchida was born in Fukuoka, Japan in 1880.Mr. Ouchida, nearly 100 years old, lives with his son Jack on land that he once farmed, in Portland--or rather, in Gresham. He farmed most of his life, or worked on the land. In 1903 he went to Hawaii where he worked in sugar cane and pineapple fields. His wife died there, and to fight his sorrow, Mr. Ouchida began to paint, then. In Japan, his father was a famous artist, calligrapher and screen painter, so Kiuda Ouchida grew up surrounded by a tradition of artistry.Kiuda Ouchida came to the Northwest looking for work, and by 1913 had married again and begun farming again in Gresham, where he still lives. He was active in the Japanese comnnmity and in the Buddhist Church. From tar paper and other discard material he made costumes for Japanese festivals; from salvage lumber and apple boxes he made the butsudan, or home altars at which he worships in his room. He has kept both a Shinto shrine (0 ) and a Buddhist shrine (. ) for himself, and given away many more than that.His son feels that probably the family will be willing to lend the home altars for exhibit. Also in Kiuda Ouchida's room are some carved picture frames which Mr. Ouchida also carved and painted. I think that he made them out of salvage lumber when he was in the camps during the war.

A18: John Kornik - woodturning, woodworking, woodburning
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Kornik was born in Berezhany, Ukraine in 1916.As a child in the Ukraine, John Kornik both whittled and learned to use a foot-powered lathe to turn wood. Although he becane a cabinetmaker by trade, he never forgot, or got too far away from, these early interests. He learned more about lathe work when he operated a metal lathe during the war in Germany.In 1951 he came to America--to Spokane. In 1963 he moved to Vancouver, Washington where he now lives. In both of these places he worked as a cabinetmaker, and in about 1973 he became involved with the Western Woodcarvers Association in Portland. Because his woodwork--with Ukrainian woodburnings and designs--is different to the Woodcarvers, they are often asking him to demonstrate his work, or to display it, and he enjoys the fellowship that the group provides. He says "Lots of activity up there...That's how people know me."Since he moved to America and had access to equipment, he turned out, in his spare time, many bowls, vases, egg cups, and containers, which he then woodburns, paints or varnishes and gives away.His house is a small museum--his living room is loaded full with his colorful works. They fill bookshelves, tables, the tops of television and of cases; they spill into other rooms in the house--kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms.He gives many of his pieces away as gifts and has many orders fo fill for peopIe who would like to buy things. He enjoys entering his work in fairs and contests.The Ukrainian Orthodox Church to which he belongs owns many of his pieces. The candleholders in the church were carved and painted by Mr. Kornik. There is a three-candle holder which symbolizes the trinity, according to the priest. There is also a two candle holder with additional significance (that I've forgotten.) Downstairs, where the members of the church meet for a noon meal every Sunday after services, some picture frames made by Mr. Kornik frame religious pictures and embroidered crosses made by another woman in the church, Helen Shalduha. (A30) Mrs. Shalduha embroidered a cross--the traditional Ukrainian kind--for John Kornik, and he made her a frame in exchange.John Kornik looked forward to retirement, and began building a shop for himself in his garden. He finished it just in time for last year, when he finally retired. Now he spends much of his time working there. Turning pysanky of wood, or bowls or vases, anHe would be willing to lend anything, and would be a good demonstrater.

A19: Nikoleta Belesiotis - embroidery, crochet
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Belesiotis was born in Nestani, Greece in 1936.Nicoletta Belesiokis has been in America only five years, and she still speaks only Greek. She spends much of her time continuing to do the handwork that she was brought up learning to do--Her house is full of doilies, covers on backs of armchairs and arms of armchairs and the like. She has her embroidery floss and fabric sent to her from Greece by relatives. She has taught her daughter how to do this kind of handwork also. Her daughter, who was born in 1960, did OFA79_DK*A19_004-006). Cathy Belesiokis, the daughter, also uses imported materials in her work. Both women do their work for themelves or for their families, and have never considered selling anything, although they do produce things for the Church bazaar.

A20: Anastasia Karassos - embroidery, crochet
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Karassos was born in Istanbul in 1893.Mrs. Karassos came to America on Friday, September 29, 1918. She has always done this kind of handwork, she says, and can't understand why anyone would be interested in it. In her house she is still using pieces of embroidery that she made years ago. The embroidered cross that is framed and hangs over her bed (001 & 002) was made in 1935 when she had to have a serious operation that no one expected her to live through. She lived though--and the cross is very special to her now. A cross stitched tablecloth made ten years ago still is used, along with many many other pieces of handwork in the trunk and dresser drawers in Mrs. Karassos' bedroom. Covering the trunk with the plain bottom side up was a small cotton pieced quilt that Mrs. Karassos thought was just junk. (008 & 009) She also has thirty or forty pairs of pot holders that she gives away at Christmas as presents. (010-012)

A21: Rev. Victor Hugo Sword - woodcarving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerRev. Sword was born in Alingsas, Sweden in 1894.Rev. Sword started carving with a pocket knife as a kid. When he was a bit older he went through a manual training course and learned to make chairs, spoons, tables and other kinds of furniture. He continued to build furniture then through his adult years. He started chiseling artistic carvings in India when he was a missionary minister there. He taught Indian children how to carve, one summer. He figures that it was some sort of gift that he has--he had never tried to carve before he was in India, then it suddenly came to him and if he says so himself, he is gifted at it. "I have to be in the spirit to carve," he says. He in fact stopped carving after his first wife died. He picked it up again after he remarried and began to have some spare time again. The fisherman that he has on his mantle is a carving of a man named Carlsen--a Swedish fisherman that Sword knew in Astoria. (004-006)

A22: Rose Gianopoulis - knitting
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Gianopoulis was born in Mistra, Sparta in 1907.When Mrs. Gianopoulis was a young girl in Sparta, everyone knit blankets with reversible patterns. It was a difficult kind of knitting because you had to carry a second thread through the whole piece, but it couldn't show. There was also a special design or pattern in which these blankets were knit. Here, in Portland, a few years ago, Mrs. Gianopolis started thinking about those blankets and decided to try to make one again, after all of these years. She had no pattern--nothing but her memory to guide her, and she had a hard time of it, figuring it out. Finally, she succeeded. This is the blanket that she made--just like those popular during her youth in Sparta. (001-003). She brought it to Church for me to see.

A29: Louie Weissenfels - blacksmith
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Weissenfels was born in Kansas City, Montana in 1889.Louie learned to be a blacksmith from his father who built the present shop in which Louie operates. Because the City Fathers of Mt. Angel apparently think that the thing is an eyesore and a fire hazard, Louie has not been allowed to make any improvements in the shop, nor is he allowed to sell it to be used as a blacksmith's shop. The building is practically falling down--When the sun shines through all of the broken and missing boards in the walls and ceilings, the whole place is just a patchwork of lights and shadows. One of the men sitting there talking with Louie asked me what I thought of Louie's air conditioning (referring to the condition of the building.) Even if the place is in disrepair, and even if I held my breath as Louie navigated the uneven floors somewhat unsteadily, still many of the older men of the community stop by and pass parts of the afternoon on the old chairs or upended boxes and barrels. They were kids in Mt. Angel when Louie kept the community running, as he says. Nobody could have managed without him in those days, for he shoed horses, repaired machinery, and just generally mended things, kept people's lives in working order. Now, he figures that older-timers just drop by out of pity for him. They bring him odd light jobs, and he charges them fifty cents or a dollar. Usually they leave him more than that--twenty five cents more, or even twice the amount he charges. And usually they stop and talk....Louie makes hoes now, of his own design, which he puts together with a welding torch--and which he makes out of old car metal. He sells them for 8-10 dollars. (013-015). The tools that he has on hand were made by his own hand--only a few have decorative handles or the like--for example, a hook and a shovel (016-019)

A30: Helena Shalduha - embroiderty
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Shalduha was born in Poltava, Ukraine in 1918.Mrs. Shalduha learned to embroider as a little girl in the Ukraine; there she learned how to do tradtitional Ukrainian embroidery, to use traditional designs--and she has almost solely embroidered these designs in her own work since then. She lived in Brazil for ten years before coming to the United States. There she worked for a large department store, doing their embroidery. The things that she does for herself, for her family, and for her church are all traditional Ukrainian--particularly in design, and often they are traditional objects connected to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and its traditions.For example, Mrs. Shalduha has a cloth which she made to cover the special bread made at Easter time. The bread is brought to the church covered in this cloth. There it receives the blessing of the priest. The cloth is only used for this occasion, once a year. (001) Mrs. Shalduha made all of the "rusnik" (pronounced rooshnik), or embroidered cloth which decorate all of the holy pictures in the church itself. The cloths are draped around the picture frames, and hang down on either side of the picture. Mrs Shalduha made all of these for the church because she wanted her children to see them there when she was gone; she wanted to leave something in the church that her children would always remember her by. The rusnik are used in other rituals, too. When a person gets married, the carry a rusnik draping a holy picture down the aisle. Mrs. Shalduha also made rusnik for her children to be used for these occasions. The rusnik are pictured in 004-011.Mrs. Shalduha also embroiders the traditional Ukrainian blouses and shirts. She sells them to people who want them, and charges from $40 to $60 depending on how much work went into the item and who the purchaser is. Often, she does this to raise money for the church. She makes the shirts from scratch--including the sewing of the shirt. She uses no pattern. (Shirts= 102-015; 023-025)In Mrs. Shalduha's house are many pillows with embroidered tops. She has made these, too. (016-022)She would be willing to lend anything.

A31: Alice Yamano - origami
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Yamano was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1910.Mrs. Yamano came back to the United States in 1926, and worked steadily and hard for many years. She and her husband had a hotel at 4th and Clay, then at 4th and Salmon. For the hotel, she made anything that was ever needed in the line of fabric. She could sew anything, and she never needed a pattern. She did the same sort of thing when she worked in a hospital here in Portland.After she retired she had more tine for doing the origami and crafts that she had learned as a child in her family. Being very inventive, and good with her hands, she tried new patterns that she saw in magazines,and invented things on her own. For example, since her husband was born in the year of the mouse, for his birthday she made a man and woman mouse kneeling on traditional mats, dressed in traditional costume. Rather than making traditional dolls, she made mice, and the mice went over so well that she had continued making a different couple--all representing generations in her family--for her husband's birthday each year, much to everyone's delight.Most of the origami that she does is simple--but she produces thousands of cranes, turtles, butterflies, and the like. She makes them for Japanese organizations so that they can raise money, or she does for charities. Often, she gives them away, also. She has taught many people how to do paper folding, and uses salvage materials--magazines, napkins, or whatever is on hand--including cigarette wrappers.

A32: Mother Evelyn Nelson collection of Emma Nelson handwork - quilting, embroidery, crochet-
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Nelson was born in Kansas.All of this handwork was made by Mother Nelson's husband's first wife, Emma. Emma and Mr. Nelson came to Oregon in 1912 from Fort Scott, Kansas. Evelyn Nelson figures that all of the handwork photographed was probably made by Emma between 1924 and 1955 in Portland, because those were the years in which they lived there and raised a family. There had been a fire which destroyed some of the Nelson's property in 1924, so Evelyn is fairly sure that none of the handwork predates 1924. Emma Nelson died in 1955. Her quilt is interesting in that the tulips are made in strips rather than even patches; her other work is fairly typical popular embroidery and crochet work. (001-011.) 032-036 are articles made by neighbors and friends and given to Mother Nelson. George Woods made her a rocking chair/pin cushion (032-033); Lucy Cochran made her a tin pincushion. (034.) The last object photographed was an old chair that five generations of her family have been raised up in. The chair was built in South Carolina probably by someone in the Jordoan family. Mother Nelson knows that it was around and in use by 1862 when her great-grandmother was being reared up, the last of 13 children. Mother Nelson figures that she's being very conservative in her dating of the chair--it was probably made way before that time. It is a small slat-backed chair with a woven seat and sawed off legs, and has been painted many many times. These days its brown, 19" x9" x6".Not made in Oregon, but pretty meaningful to a family, and pretty remarkable in having travelled so far and stuck around so long, considering the exploits of the Jordon family.

A36: Mr. and Mrs. Rangsith - painting, weaving, embroidery
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Rangsith was born in Vientiane, Laos in 1914. Mrs. Rangsith was born in Vang Vieng, Laos in 1924.Like her husband, Mrs. Rangsith feels that she cannot continue her craft here in this country because she has no place to work and no tools to work with. Also, she does not have the silk that she is used to working on. She learned how to weave from family and friends when she was fifteen and has been weaving ever since. In 1942, she began teaching weaving in a school in Laos. She continues to wear the silk skirts that she weaves, on special occasions. Most of her weaving has involved traditional Laotian patterns and designs, and mostly she has taught Laotians how to weave the broad pieces of cloth which women wear in festive and special occasions.Mr. Rangsith can carve, & paint; he had no formal training in art, simply learned from the people around him. Because of his considerable talent, he rose to the position of director of the Fine Art Institute in Laos. He believes that he was successful in his chosen profession because of his skill not because of any formal credentials. He started to make a living with his artwork in 1939 at the age of 25. He started painting and carving when he was 18. He first began to do these things when he attended a monastary school. The paintings that he has in home depict traditional ceremonial Laotian scenes and edifices; they remind him and his countrymen of home and are immensely popular among the Laotians who live in the apartment complex at which he resides.Essentially, he is a professional artist who paints in formal academic style, I think.

A37: Laura Evans - embroidery, needlework
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Evans was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1908.Mrs. Evans learned to embroider as a child. When she was about 10, her mother taught her how. She used to help piecing quilts even before that. She says thast she didn't roam the streets, she did something constructive. In recent years she learned to crochet. She always likes to do something with her hands rathan than just sitthing there. A37_003-004 is what Mrs. Evans calls her "sick piece." She'd work on it whenever she was sick at home or just feeling poorly. "It took us two years workin' on that." hse said. Mrs. Betty Jane Muckleroy used to work on it with her. This was all in Portland, but the two of them had known each other back in Kansas, and Mrs. Evans has a bridge cloth that Mrs. Muckleroy made in about 1932 in Wichita, Kansas (A37_001).

A38: Marie Smith - weaving, crocheting
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Smith was born in Paris, Texas in 1898.Marie Smith is well known with the Portland African American community for her work for civil rights. She's long been articulate, outspoken and courageous, and can explain just about anything, so she'd be a good person to demonstrate weaving or just about anything. She is a wonderful narrator and tells dramatic and moving stories about her experiences, about family history, about slavery days, about memories. She started to weave in the 1940s and would up teaching weaving through the Park Bureau. Mostly she has kept rag rugs and hand towels. (005-010) It was through the Park Bureau Center that she learned to weave in the first place, but she had been sewing for years and years. She used to make the costumes for the Portland Opera before it left the Park Bureau. She also used to make all kinds of costumes for neighborhood kids when they were in pageants or the like. And she had done hundreds of pieces of embroidery and crochetwork in her own home. She had belonged to a Needle Art Club when she was in her twenties. From them she learned all kinds of fancy stitches. She belongs to the Senior Citizens Club at the Urban League now, and likes trying all kinds of contemporary crafts.

A40: Catalina Palcios - quiltmaking
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMrs. Palacios learned to quilt in Texas. She made her first quilt there in about 1953. She had need of some more blankets-- she had just had her fourth baby. About that time some Chicanas moved into the neighborhood; these women made patterns up themselves or borrowed patterns, and Mrs. Palacios has always done the same. There, they stuffed or filled quilts with wool from their own sheep. Mrs. Palacios has made several changes in this procedure-- now she buys dacron or even an inexpensive blanket for filling. She has been using patterned sheets for bottoms since you don't need to piece them together, and since she likes the fabric. Bed sheets, besides being more convenient, are also cheaper. On a quilt such as the doll pattern (appliqued dolls; 006-007) it can take Mrs. Palacios up to two months to complete the entire thing. The "camino de borracho" or Drunkard's Path quilt (018-022) took about 1 week to piece. Mostly she does the work in the winter, but even this summer, between-- or rather after-- picking berries, she worked on quilts. She has been offered lots of money for her quilts, but prefers to give them to her children and grandchildren. Many of the older quilts have holes in them where her sons dropped cigarettes while smoking in bed.

A41: Maria de Jesus Mendez - emboidery, sewing, crochetwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMaria Mendez speaks no English; one of our meetings was filled with gesticulations and giggles. The second was filled with the rest of the family who acted as interpreters. She lived in Mexico and Texas most of her life, and has always danced and loved music. Many of the things which she showed me were costumes that she makes from memory for her grandchildren to wear in fiestas and celebrations of other kinds (030-050). She also has made many crocheted articles which decorate her home. She makes them as she makes costumes, without bought patterns, although she learns other patterns from other women in the community.

A42: Dahlia Barrera - quiltmaking
Description of Skill by FieldworkerDahlia learned to quilt from her mother and other women in Asherton, Texas. There, they would sheer the wool from their own sheep and take it over the border to Mexico where it would be cleaned and washed for a small amount of money. The wool was used to fill the quilts then. In the quilt (001-004) with appliqued daffodils, wool from Asherton that Dahlia carried up here is used as filler. The other quilts were made in Asherton by Dahlia.She owns some leatherwork that was done by Chicanos in the area.

A43: Matt Tolonen - instrument making, woodcarving, knife making
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMatt Tolonen's parents died when he was a young boy in Finland, and he was apprenticed for five or six years to a carpenter and cabinetmaker. For a while in Finland he was foreman of a logging operation. When he came to America, however, the first job he took was fishing. During WW1 he worked in the shipyards. His children remember that he was very talented with his hands and could make anything. From the time that his oldest child was little he made toys for them from wood. In the 1920s and 1930s, when he was older, he spent much of his time making fiddles. He wanted to make a fiddle to give to each child and grandchild and made about 12 fiddles within those years, before he died in 1941.Before that he had often repaired musical instruments, like mandolins. And he did all of his work in the kitchen. Rose Tolonen remembers that "the kitchen was always full of wood chips and the pot of ever stinkin' glue . . . On the stove." While he was a boatbuilder, Matt Tolonen made all the half models of ships he expected to build. These half models are now in the possession of a grandson and his family. The fiddles are distributed throughout the family, as are the kanteles, and the knives. As part of being a boatbuilder, Tolonen had learned some ironwork and worked as head of a blacksmith shop in Astoria for some time, too. There he made all the bolts and irons and stuff for WWI wooden ships. He made knives, too, and tempered blades. The Finnish knives (pukko) that he made are in the possession of his oldest son. (055-068) Fiddles are 048-054; and 010-023), Kanteles. Needles for knitting twine nets (024-027) are also in the family's possession.

A44: Maria Wirkkala - weaving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerWhen Maria was a young girl growing up in Finland, she began to learn to weave. Her mother had a loom at home, and Maria would help to weave towels, drapes, tablecloths and scarves, etc. at home. "You name it, we made it," she says. Mostly, the things that they make were of linen.About a year and a half after Maria came to the U.S. she saw an ad in the paper from someone who had looms to sell. Maria bought one-- an older four harness loom, and she began weaving then. The yellow placemats and runners that she has were made on that loom at that time (009-017). She had gone to a home economics school in Finland for a year-- there she had learned weaving and many other skills, so she was able to pick it up again fairly easily. Mostly she gives her work away, although these days she hasn't had much time to do any weaving, nor is there room in their trailer house to set up her big loom. She has demonstrated weaving at the Smithsonian Festival in D.C.; for them she decided to try to figure out how to weave a "takana", or the traditional double sided wall hanging. It was hard to figure it out, but she managed to do a small reversible cross takana (018-022).

A45: Oiva Wirkkala - woodcarving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerWhen Oiva Wirkkala was in 8th grade, he quite school and went to the woods; there he worked for the rest of his life, mostly. Injuries from work forced him to slow down when he was in his seventies; he worked around lumber camps in various jobs, then served as a custodian until his retirement a few years ago.During spare moments when he was logging, Oiva would whittle. There were many spare moments, because he was a high climber and would have to wait around until he was needed. Moments of rest were engineered for him by fellow loggers frequently too. He was quite a hand at drawing , and would use pieces of charcoal from burned out trees to sketch pictures of naked women on the backs of logs. The men enjoyed his pictures and would often tell him that they would take his turn at a job of work if he would stay and draw for them.

A47: Gerhardt Thoen - woodcarving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerGerhardt Thoen's father gave him a set of woodcarving tools for Christmas when he was about 12. He started carving then and made numerous little animals. It wasn't until about 1970 that he started doing anything Norwegian. He met an old Norwegian man in Iowa by the name of Ole Bismo, and Bismo showed him the rudiments of Norwegian relief carving. Thoen continued on his own and read many books on the subject and talked to many people. A few years ago he and his family were active in folk dancing before he got started with his carving, and after he had done a good bit of carving, they together ran what they called a "Norwegian House Arts and Handwork School" in their home. Thoen is fairly active in festivals--he shows his work there. Most of it is given away to friends and relatives, but at festivals he takes order for work which he will sell. He has also carved crosses, pulpits and altars for several churches. He is articulate and a good demonstrator.

A48: Torbjørg (Vesla) Harris - Rosemaling
Description of Skill by FieldworkerWhen Vesla was young in Norway she "fooled around with rosemaling." She took her first course in it in 1964 from Lunden (a single instructor.) Then in August of 1964 she started going to Arts and Crafts school. It was more or less a fluke that it was rosemaling that she would up concentrating in, for she was interested in several kinds of handwork at the time. She had grown up interested in rosemaling, however-- and had always been exposed to it. In houses in her district-- and even in the homes of relatives-- she had seen walls covered with the rosemaling of older and now famous rosemalers--centuries old. However, rosemaling wasn't the thing to do for girls. There were only men doing it. There were no women rosemalers. As Vesla said-- in the winter the men goofed off and did rosemaling and the women still had to do all the heavy work. Women couldn't become rosemalers. No women did any rosemaling until it became a fad.Said Vesla "We lived with it. It was all around me . . . You more or less took it for granted." This made her approach to rosemaling different from that of those who approached it as a fad. She was very interested in historic traditions of rosemaling, and not only patterns her work in the tradition of earlier rosemalers, but understands the different regional varieties of rosemaling. She understands as well what a muddle faddists make of these traditions. She is a one woman campaign to educate the public about true rosemaling tradition. She is articulate and real real smart-- she'd be a great demonstrator anywhere. And her work is exquisite.

A50: Maija Carlson - embroidery, handwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerLearned handwork at school-- knitting and crocheting, but from own interest learned how to make rugs and other things from kits or craft stores. Gets most of her ideas from kits and books and stuff. She figures that because she grew up in the city she didn't grow up learning how to bake bread or weave. After all, there was no room for a loom in her home where she grew up. She keeps the stuff that she makes now. She only makes things that she needs or that she will use in her own home. She has no time to make stuff just to give it away. Would lend.

A51: Fred Nordstrom - rugmaking
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMr. Nordstrom started making rugs about fifteen years ago as a hobby when he retired. He had seen some down in Coos Bay that just kept on unraveling and he figured that he could do better than that. There was a loom that he knew about in the basement of the house that he bought. His wife knew that was the same loom that her family had used when she was younger. So, the Nordstroms kept the loom and Mr. Nordstrom started working on it. He learned how to weave by figuring it all out himself. The loom was made by Andrew Johnson from Finland. He lived in Youngs River and made the loom there probably in the late 1880s. Mr. Nordstrom sells some of his looms whenever he can.

A52: Henna Lammi - weaving, embroidery, pullout work (revinnaistyo)
Description of Skill by FieldworkerHenna Lammi always watched her grandmother weaving in Finland. She used to help her grandmother warp the loom, and her grandmother would say "Come on now, pay attention--you'll want to know this someday!" Says Henna, "And she was right. I can see that great big thing right now!" Henna's grandmother did the sewing for the whole village and Henna Lammi always used to watch and now she remembers how her grandmother used to be always making socks and sweaters and all of that. Here, Henna "renewed all of that handicrafts."After she came here from Finland in 1952 she bought a loom from an Astoria girlfriend. Her husband turned it from a 4-harness to an 8-harness loom and when she had time she would work on it. She wove the wall hangings, placemats and rugs in her home. The rugs that are wall hangings have special stories to them and represent traditional characters or symbols. (022-027; 038-042 are ryijy or wall hangings. Pillows and other weavings are 028-037.)

A53: Doug Machem - rugmaking, hooked rugs
Description of Skill by FieldworkerStarted in 1973 with a kit when in hospital recovering from heart surgery. Tried [] and other things but nothing challenged him like this. Has stayed with it; made over 50 rugs. Almost all of them have been given away as gifts. Many people come around and ask for them. He enjoys being able to give them away to who he wants to. Does it while watching TV when he's feeling good; hooking relaxes him. When he's doing well he does rugs, 4 hours a day or so. Some of his kids have started to do it.

A54: Ella Simondsen - handwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerElla Simondson learned a lot of work similar to Hardanger work when she was just a child. She learned barwork, counting stitches and drawn work-- in combinations that she feels are more difficult to master than so-called hardanger work. But she did this kind of handwork from the time that she was 14 or 15 years old, learning how from her mother. Ten years ago, she realized that many people were getting interested in this kind of work again, and many Scandinavian women wanted to know how to do the kind of work that they remembered seeing their mothers and grandmothers do. Ella began teaching different people how to do the stuff, without charge. She did it for free just so that people could learn--and the demand grew. She subsequently opened her shop, and sells locally made work along with imported things and embroidery thread, patterns and the like. But she has continued her classes. Now the "Scandinavian Workshop" (as the women call themselves) has been meeting for ten years; they still meet (with many new members and without some old ones) once a week, nine times a year, in the Community Hall. As far as her own work goes, Ella used to give away everything she had each Christmas. Now she's beginning to hold onto some of it.She's very knowledgeable about all aspects of Scandinavian handwork and costumes. She has read extensively--and of course can do fine work herself. She has singlehandedly revitalized a tradition of handwork in Astoria. She is an excellent contact, would be an excellent demonstrator, presenter or whatever. She knows everyone and knows the quality of their work as well.

A55: Shirley Schwend - embroidery, beadwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerShirley Schwend started working on this jacket in 1972 or so. She had done embroidery and pillowcases when she was younger "years ago." When she decided to make her husband a Swiss jacket she began looking through books to figure out how to do feather stitch and other fancy stitches. Other people in the community had Swiss jackets from Switzerland, and her husband wanted one too. It took her two years to make the thing in her spare time. The pattern for the jacket itself was taken from someone else's jacket--other women in the community had at one time or another torn a jacket apart to figure out how to make one, so Shirley was able to get advice on jacket construction. For the embroidery she made a pattern up of what she wanted on it and she simply sewed through it onto the jacket. She drew the pattern freehand. Her husband wears it in parades and on Swiss occasions. Though the family has the only "authentic" Swiss band in the area, he doesn't wear it when he plays very often, simply because he'd ruin it from the sweat. The family is very consciously Swiss, very committed to preserving the Swiss tradition; the jacket is one of the things of which they are all most proud.

A56: Carroll Brooks - fiddlemaking, woodcarving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerBorn and raised on dairy farm; homestead in Montana 1917; married there in 1918; raised a family there: cow business, champion sheepshearer for 14 years; ran shearing crew; one of best bronco busters that ever lived. Moved from Montana to Idaho in 1937. Left because of grasshoppers, drought and depression. Then to Washington 1939--after eaten out by grasshoppers again. Was MP/security guard at Aluminum Co. Came down here in 1969. Started building fiddles in 1956 in Vancouver when retired and moved off farm; still working at aluminum plant. Kept making them (fiddles). After quit at aluminum factory went back to farm; sold farm; rented it out. Moved here and retired for good. makes fiddles most of the time and has made most of his fiddles here to keep himself busy. A lot of different fiddles were made from salvage lumber; from driftwood, fence posts, gifts, even cactuses. he figures he can make a fiddle out of anything. He has made hundreds of fiddles and keeps all of them--in his living room and in most every other room in the house as well. He keeps them all and absolutely won't sell any--though he has stories about violinists from fine orchestras who have tried to persuade him to sell them fiddles. He's made many out of local woods, and they are particularly interesting for that--not just myrtlewood, cut sagebrush, even a tree with a local legend attached to it--the Octopus tree.

A59: Agnes Fletcher - quilting, fancywork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerLearned to crochet at 8; started using sewing machine at 10; mother quilted and did lots of fancy work: embroidery, crochet. First quilts done in 30s--"I guess I've always been interested in it." Needed quilts to fit 3/4 side beds in her own home. So needed [] bedding and always some of these patterns in the newspapers "and maybe that sparked my interest a little more. About the second one I did I had carded the wool from sheep we had." Gave to daughter in law, all worn out now. So had several started; didn't finish some of them until she retired. Made more than 20 full sized since she retired 9 years ago. Made one for each of grand children.

A60: Mildred Urie - bobbin lace
Description of Skill by FieldworkerMildred Urie started making lace when she and a friend found a sack of lace and bobbins at a rummage sale. She wrote to Woman's World to ask about it. A woman from San Francisco wrote back to help. Mildred and a friend got books and even though the books were in Swedish they managed to figure out what to do for themselves. Within a year they met a woman in Portland who knew how to do the stuff and they all started getting together to help each other. Now there are more than 30 women who do this. Since that time, Mildred has been demonstrating and teaching it to other people. She also sews, has started to learn weaving, ceramics and latch hooking rugs. She learned to crochet when she was 5 years old and she did lots of knitting and crocheting while she raised her family. She knit all of her husband's socks, etc. She still has a few of the things that she crocheted when she was 12-13 years old.

A62: Marguerite Boentgen - quilting, handwork
Description of Skill by Fieldworker"I've always done it." (re: Handwork) Learned to knit, crochet, tat as a child. "We did it all . . . I can remember walking to a girlfriend's house tatting all the way. "People could follow her all the way along the two or three miles because strips of discarded tatting would be in the fences all along the road--pieces that she'd thrown out, made mistakes on. (This was at Napa when she was 10 or 11.) She learned to sew everything, and when she had her own family--of four girls and a boy--and it was the depression, she sewed and she knitted. She made sweaters and caps and mittens and everything--mostly out of flour sacks when it wasn't wool. She still has a drawerful of colored sacks. She used to use 'em for shirts and dresses. She started quilting about the time that Audry (A65) was a baby. Her first quilted quilt was made then (in 1920s) but before that she always used to piece tops and tie them just for ordinary use. On her own 10th birthday, her grandmother, mother, and a friend from "over the plains" and Marguerite all worked on a quilt for Marguerite. That was really her first impression of it all, and she's never forgotten how nice it was. Her folks did all of that stuff. She slept under all kinds of quilts that her grandmother made. She figures that a 9-patch and Log Cabin are the oldest.

A64: Wibb Ward - chainsaw carving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerDid carving while in woods--balls and chains and all that, but didn't start this stuff until about 14 years ago. "Just started in and scattered 'em around--started in with a chain saw fourteen years ago and kept on with it." Had seen it done around and decided to try; patterned his park after some of the others he'd seen. All wood is salvage--mostly driftwood. Takes his 4-wheel drive truck and goes down to the beach and finds enormous chunks of wood. Keeps most of them, gives some as gifts. Has cleared a whole piece of land just to display the carvings, enjoys people hearing about in and stopping by.

A65: Audrey Peters - quilting
Description of Skill by FieldworkerStarted quilting in 1949 or 50 but remembers watching mother quilt. Started herself when her own kids were little, had the time and the material left over from making their clothes. Has made about 25 quilts and has kept all of them, mostly. Sold a few, but only does so rarely. Started Tillamook County Quilters Assoc. on Oct. 16, 1974. Portland had organized Northwest Quilters in May 1974. Audrey saw their Oregon quilt and decided (with Jack her husband) to make a Tillamook Cty. Quilt. She put ads in Quilters newsletters and got women together. They started long before the bicentennial but it took them until 1975 to finish it. For 1976 she organized a show--200 quilts for 200 years and managed to round up that many quilts from around the county. At first, only Audrey, her mother and one other woman had ever even gone to a quilt show, but she got it all organized despite it all. Thirty to fifty people attend the Tillamook County Quilters meetings once a month now. 001-015 shows one of these Wednesday meetings--with Audrey, her mother Marguerite Boentgen, Agnes Fletcher, Dorothy Sidl.

A66: John Skaaluren - woodworking, inlay, and carving
Description of Skill by FieldworkerAlthough Mr. Skaaluren had worked in many lumber mills he really didn't start building furniture and doing inlay work until he was partially retired in early 1970s. When Mrs. Skaaluren was growing up in Rosedal (the same town as Mr. Skaaluren) at the turn of the century, inlay work was very popular--a way for people who made things of wood to make the items more fancy. This sort of inlay work was done by people in their houses, like a family tradition rather than a commercial one. Mrs. Skaaluren couldn't say for sure whether or not Mr. Skaaluren's father did inlay work, but he was the 3rd generation of boatbuilders.

A67: Dagney Gribskov - handwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerBegan doing cross stitch at about age 7--still has a sample from 1912--which she finished up recently. Went to a private Danish-American school in Minnesota for a few years and there learned other kinds of handwork. Didn't do much when kids growing up, but in 1962 when she and her husband went to Europe she saw a Xmas tablecloth in Copenhagen that she really wanted--so she went to the store, bought the pattern, threads, cloth, etc. and went to it then when she got home. After that, because she had known about bobbin lace, she included the pillow for lacemaking in your booth (display . . .

A68: Hannah and Peter Skovbo - handwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerWhen 15 took lessons in French embroidery (the padded stitching that isn't cutwork on the pieces photographed) from a Danish lady here in Junction City. [Came out here in 1903.] Had an enormous hope chest by the time she was 18 filled with embroidered sheets and pillowcases (used French embroidery), woven thread pillow, and lots of other things--but it all burned up in a farm fire about 1928. From 1918, when she moved back onto farm with husband and started raising a family, she did lots of handwork: sewing all clothes for kids, made overcoats for her boys, tied quilts.

A71: Marguerite Jensen - handwork
Description of Skill by FieldworkerLearned from her mom when she was 18-19. Mostly tied them then because for immediate use. Didn't quilt them for other people until 15 years ago when got in with festival. Started making them to sell then. Ones to sell were often quilted on own design, and by pattern from book; stuck to patterns that would sell well. People mostly wanted a patchwork pattern. Home made embroidered and appliqued ones and have quilted quilts for other people. Could quilt a quilt (does it 6-8 hours a day) within 2-3 weeks. Also learned to crochet when 11-12 (from her mom) All grandchildren have quilts from her. Produces lots of items.

A72: Frances Hahn - painting
Description of Skill by FieldworkerHad done [] painting when kids were young. Painted first thing, a love seal around 1950. Liked the work that a cousin (doing Peter Hunt stuff) was turning out, so decided to try own hand at it. At first would transfer designs from Better Homes and Gardens magazines, but now draws freehand around a theme. Usually pertaining to the family. Was involved in international folk dancing and used that as a theme for a clock--the heart on doa was done to announce wedding receptions so that friends could find the house for a wedding reception.
