My Return to Mt. Horeb

Last winter I spent several days at the Mt. Horeb Area Historical Society, where I photographed over 40 objects for the database. They have an extensive and well-documented collection of locally made furniture and textiles, including furniture by Norwegian immigrant cabinetmaker Aslak Lie and coverlets by weaver Molly Nace.

Last week I returned to photograph a group of hand-painted porcelain from a local artist, Hazel Miller Hanneman.Vase, hand-painted by Hazel Miller Hanneman

I also photographed a number of other Wisconsin objects that Brian Bigler and Laurie Boyden had unearthed since my last visit, including a powder horn etched by early Mt. Horeb pioneer William Sweet.Powder horn etched by William Sweet

I’ll be posting all of these new objects to the database in the new year.
