About Pamela Bonaguide
This piece entitled Moon Lace is a vintage doily preserved in cement. Moon Lace reflects upon and honors the maker of this lace doily. As if with the changing of the seasons, Moon Lace represents the work and dedication of the maker in the past and gives new life to its pattern, technique and threads. Doilies were popular in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century to adorn an elegant dining table, brighten a side table or protect an upholstered chair from a man’s Macassar hair oil. Women collected threads and sent away for patterns. They might work tirelessly during hot summer afternoons or under kerosene light to create these pieces. Lace was thought to bring warmth, charm and could provoke conversation amongst the hostess and her guests. Pam Bonaguide of Tall Tales and Curiosity Studio, Framingham is a local artist and a collector of old things. Here she saves torn, discolored, or unwanted lace. She considers each piece to be a gift from the past. To learn more about the art and history of lace making ask here at the Morse Institute Library.
