Material Poetry, the catalogue of an Irish crafts exhibition that took place at Causey Contemporary in New York earlier this year under the aegis of The American Irish Historical Society.
The exhibition also showcased the first pieces from the STUDIOpractice project, which “facilitates collaboration between the W/WORKSHOP, other leading studios and leading design/architectural practices.”
The catalogue is a collaboration between STUDIOpractice and Coracle Press. As well as a striking set of photographs of the exhibits by Andrew Bradley, the book features an eccentric anthology of Irish poetry selected by Simon Cutts and Jim Mays. The poets featured are:
Seamus Heaney (a previously uncollected DART poem)
Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin
And the craftspeople:
