By Augustus C. Pugin

Augustus Charles PuginPugin's Gothic decoration: The vintage Sourcebook of ornamental Motifs with a hundred PlatesЭтот, ставший классическим альбом, составлен из первоисточников, в этом его непреходящая ценность. Книга включает в себя a hundred плат готических архитектурных орнаментов, с придирчивою тщательностью воспроизведенных с редких гравюр 19-ого столетия. Многие - цветочные и лиственные орнаменты, составленные из групп, капителей, границ, скобок, бордюров, гротесков и других декоративных элементов - взяты от таких архитектурных ориентиров эпохи Готики как Новая Часовня Колледжа в Оксфорде, Руанский Собор, Винчестерский Собор, Замок Kenilworth, Дворец Eltham и могила Графа Уорика. В альбоме представлена преимущественно английская Готика, что само по себе чрезвычайно интересно, так как этот аспект культурного слоя мировой архитектуры недостаточно освещён за пределами Британии.

The work on the left is still being roughed out. 22 Laurence finishing the shape of the seat corbel. 23 The carver’s bench with all his tools. Note that the carving is held on the right-hand side by a carver’s cramp, which fits through a hole in the bench. 24 A selection of tools: clockwise from bottom left – a V tool or parting tool, a straight gouge, a spoon bit, a fluter or veiner, and a back bend.

I have tried to demonstrate with this single example just how useful our modest English foliage supporters can be as a diagnostic tool. Another litmus test for the misericord supporter is as an indicator of the number of craftsmen employed in making a particular suite of furniture, and of the chronology of the building programme.

The veins and leaves still have to be rounded over. 26 The carving almost finished. 27 Close-up of completed centre carving. Note how the texture on the top block is created with gouge marks. All the blocks have this texture, which contrasts with the very smooth surface of the parchment scroll. 28 The completed carving.
