Cobalt Blue by Sachin Kundalkar


Original Title: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt Blue is a tale of rapturous love and fierce heartbreak told with tenderness and unsparing clarity. Brother and sister Tanay and Anuja both fall in love with the same man, an artist lodging in their family home in Pune, in western India. He seems like the perfect tenant, ready with the rent and happy to listen to their mother’s musings on the imminent collapse of Indian culture. But he’s also a man of mystery. He has no last name. He has no family, no friends, no history, and no plans for the future. When he runs away with Anuja, he overturns the family’s lives. Translated from Marathi by acclaimed novelist and critic Jerry Pinto, Sachin Kundalkar’s elegantly wrought and exquisitely spare novel explores the disruption of a traditional family by a free-spirited stranger to examine a generation in transition. Intimate, moving, sensual, and wry in its portrait of young love, Cobalt Blue is a frank and lyrical exploration of gay life in India that recalls the work of Edmund White and Alan Hollinghurst—of people living in emotional isolation, attempting to find long-term intimacy in relationships that until recently were barely conceivable to them.

Cobalt Blue by Peggy Payne


Original Title: Cobalt Blue

Burned out from work and a recent breakup, Andie Branson, a 38-year-old commercial artist in a conservative town in the American South, has a shocking and unexpected religious experience, kundalini rising, the physical manifestation of tantric enlightenment. Andie's struggle to regain control of her mind and body is complicated by a too close connection with her glamorous world-wandering parents, especially her magnetically attractive father, and by an assignment working closely with a bigoted U.S. senator, the man who, for her, personifies evil. Her story ranges from the elegant little golf town of Pinehurst, North Carolina, to the raucous and shadowy byways of pre-Katrina New Orleans, with pauses in India, Ecuador, and other exotic locations. Andie finds her redemption finally through ecstatic religious ritual, the mysterious healing properties of water, and by claiming and steering the power that has erupted within her.

The Cobalt Blue Pigment Used On Islamic Ceramics And Chinese Blue And White Porcelains by Rui Wen


Original Title: The Cobalt Blue Pigment Used On Islamic Ceramics And Chinese Blue And White Porcelains

Cobalt blue pigment has been used to decorate ceramics as early as the New Kingdom (the 16th century BC - 11 th century BC) in ancient Egypt. The blue decoration ceramics have re-flourished since the Islamic Abbasid dynasty (750 AD-1258 AD). The large quantity Abbasid overglaze painted earthenware used the cobalt blue for decoration. In the same period, the ceramics with cobalt blue painting decoration also appeared in Chinese Tang dynasty (618 AD-907 AD). It is a great innovation in Chinese ceramic history since the aesthetic taste of Chinese ceramics was influenced by jade culture and consequently the monochrome decorative style was appreciated. The blue-and-white porcelain declined when Tang dynasty collapsed. However, the blue decoration ceramics has developed continuously in the Islamic lands. The cobalt blue were decorated on Minai wares, Lustre wares, underglaze painting wares and tiles from iz" to 19th centuries. The Chinese Blue-and-white porcelain re-blossomed in the Yuan dynasty (1271-1368 AD) in China. It gradually became the main stream product in Chinese ceramics industry during the is" - 17th century. Large quantities blue-and-white porcelains were exported to West Asia and further to Europe during the Ming (1368-1644 AD) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. This thesis mainly focuses on the chemical composition of the cobalt blue used on Islamic and Chinese ceramics and then the provenance, manufacturing process and the spread route of the cobalt blue were discussed base on the composition analysis. The research includes the X-ray fluorescence (XRF) experiments and the ancient literature analysis. The chemical composition of the cobalt blue pigment was obtained by the XRF examination and then the mineral of raw cobalt ores and further its provenance was discussed. The manufacture process and the trading route of the cobalt blue were also discussed through comparing the previous scholars blue ceramics and glasses results and analyzing the ancient literature. Based on the scientific experiments, the seven groups of cobalt blue for Islamic ceramics and glasses were summarized. Each of the groups has the distinctive compositionaJ distribution. Meanwhile, there are two main cobalt sources for Islamic ceramics and glasses in history, which are Persian Kashan sulaimani and German Schneeberg smalt. Most of the blue groups were originated from the two main cobalt sources. The different compositional distribution is due to the different manufacture processes. The cobalt blue of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain was depended on import in the early period. However, the imported cobalt blue could not meet the demand when the Chinese blue-and-white porcelain industry rose in the is" century. The manufacture had to use the Chinese local cobalt ores since the is" century.

Cobalt Blue by Jane Graham


Original Title: Cobalt Blue

Cobalt Blue is an important addition to the art world's library, being the first time that a comprehensive cross-section of the work of Jane Graham has been published. Born in England, Graham became a professional artist in the 1970s and exhibited a series of powerful abstract paintings, including The Goal and Black Sand Beach at the National Museum and Art Gallery in Gaborone, Botswana, in 1979, to critical acclaim. By the 1990s her reputation was assured, and was cemented by the remarkable Meeting Point exhibition in Townsville, Queensland, in 1991, which represented a fusion of her work as a painter and a sculptor. Representative pieces from both of these exhibitions are included here, along with many others, covering her output up to 2005. Graham's work does not attempt to expound a great intellectual thesis; rather it records her spontaneous response to life around her. The most exciting examples of her art encourage the viewer to participate and need the viewer to make them live. She believes that art should not be set aside as something special, but considered as a valid part of everyday life. Vitality and a spirit of exploration buoy her work: a fact that the reader will be in no doubt about having read this book.
