You know what situation both Haley and Natali will nope right on out of? Creepy dolls. Whether they’re ceramics inspired by a morbid cautionary tale or literal wax copies of Victorian children who passed too soon, there’s just something about these dolls--or any doll, really--that’s always just a tiny bit unsettling. So, come along with us in season 1, episode 5 of the Bones & Bobbins Podcast as we open one of our more securely locked cabinets in the Curiosity Shop and explore the sad origins and clever finishing techniques of Frozen Charlotte dolls, plus the many, many dolls and effigies made by mourning Victorians and modern makers.
In season 1, episode 04 of the Bones & Bobbins podcast, Natali explores the somewhat sinister and extremely infuriating history of pockets in women's garments, then Haley swoops in with the Victorian chatelaine, which, honestly, might be even better than having actual pockets. Of course, our listeners will be relieved to know that enterprising women had no trouble finding ways to harbor weapons in both.
Show notes will magically appear at https://www.bonesandbobbins.com on Friday.
Throughout history, death has always been the topic of SO MUCH art. But, in this episode, that art actually IS death itself. Settle in while Haley and Natali discuss the art and craft of death masks (complete with a tangent on rockstar naughty bits), and the never-ending endeavour of turning centuries of bones into architecture in the Paris Catacombs.
In this very first official episode of the Bones & Bobbins Podcast, Haley and Natali discuss Miyu Kojima and Frances Glessner Lee--two women, worlds and decades apart, who combined craft and death in their own amazing way. One would process death and create an act of public service for the living, the other would birth Forensic Science as we know it today.
