We are so pleased to have Josie Morway’s new work titled ‘They Make Stars of Bone’ in the upcoming ‘Write & Repeat’ show. The text on the piece is the full poem “Some Last Questions” by W.S. Merwin, delicately written in blue and gold enamel wrapping around a naturally shed deer antler…absolutely stunning.

The antler reads Merwin’s full text:

‘Some Last Questions’

What is the head
a. Ash
What are the eyes
a. The wells have fallen in and have
What are the feet
a. Thumbs left after the auction
No what are the feet
a. Under them the impossible road is moving
Down which the broken necked mice push
Balls of blood with their noses
What is the tongue
a. The black coat that fell off the wall
With sleeves trying to say something
What are the hands
a. Paid
No what are the hands
a. Climbing back down the museum wall
To their ancestors the extinct shrews that will
Have left a message
What is the silence
a. As though it had a right to more
Who are the compatriots
a. They make the stars of bone
