Carving Poetry

9-16 September, 2018

"Carving Poetry", includes poetry readings and engravings demonstrations. Jac Carley reads his original poetic work, while Amy West records words or phrases inspired by the recited poetry. This particular demonstration differs from traditional wheel engraving, applying the use of a flexible hand tool to engrave calligraphic signs on glass. "Carving Poetry" reaches a wide audience, ranging from calligraphy enthusiasts to those of literature, with the peculiarity of introducing glass as an artistic means. Jac and Amy intertwine these two different artistic expressions through the word and the line.
