Spier Architectural Arts

Poetry Pavers

The Architectural Ceramic Studio is currently busy with an exciting project as part of Dancing in Other Words, an international poetry festival, curated by Breyten Breytenbach, that will take place at Spier on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May 2013.

The brief asked for a tactile legacy of the festival through an artistic medium, and our creative response involves replacing multiple brick pavers on a walkway at Spier with a series of handmade ceramic pavers, with the participating poets' handwritten words transposed onto its surface.

These pavers will be installed on the walkway outside the Spier Wine Centre in June 2013, providing a lasting memory of the event and the rare opportunity for visitors to walk on words!
