DECORATIVE ARTS & DESIGN IN CANADA
Ornamentum magazine is a publication of the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/Cercle canadien des arts décoratifs (CSDA/CCAD). Ornamentum is the only magazine dedicated to design and decorative arts in Canada.
THE SPIRIT OF PLACE
Ornamentum’s 15th anniversary issue explores Canadian identity and how makers contribute to and bring to life a sense of place.
The Spirit of Place issue features contemporary artist Carol Rossman’s American Southwest inspired ceramics and Ts'msyen artist Morgan Asoyuf’s multidisciplinary exploration of Indigenous matriarchy. Also inside, scholar Marc Choko travels through the evolving designs of Canadian Pacific Railway posters while Jessica Mace examines Toronto’s iconic bay-and-gable houses.
