Artist & Sculptor

ANTHONY GIANCARLI


We’ll be talking about . . .

About Anthony . . .

Anthony Giancarli is an artist and sculptor. His field of endeavor is lifecasting; creating Art from molds taken directly from the human body. His work focuses on capturing a moment in time in the life of his subject. These personal sculptures evoke more emotion than any other art form.

Anthony is the oldest of six children born to Italian immigrants. His father became a self-made businessman and successful builder. His mother, a woman of exceptional culinary skills was a successful entrepreneur in her own right establishing two eateries.

“I am very fortunate to have had parents who instilled in me the value of hard work and  striving to reach my goals and aspirations. At a young age I was always creating something… tinkering with this or with that. I loved creating things that no one else seemingly had ever done. Like many, I believe that true art comes from within; a passion yearning to come out. I also believe that the work of an artist is never truly finished. There’s just a pause between one expression and the next. And there is a common thread that can be seen in an artist’s work which is born from his or her spirit and projected into reality.

Anthony was educated as a civil engineer and is a self-taught artist. He started in the art of lifecasting over 11 years ago when he became fascinated while watching an artist use techniques to take molds directly from life. Through trial and error Anthony has honed his skills to create wonderful and creative personal sculptures.

Q.S.O.S.

QSOS logo

Quilters’ S.O.S. – Save Our Stories (Q.S.O.S.) creates, through recorded interviews, a broadly accessible body of information concerning quiltmaking, both present-day and in living memory, for scholarship and exhibition. This grassroots project continually captures the voices and stories of quiltmakers and posts the transcribed interviews here. Our downloadable how-to Manual has everything you need to conduct your own Q.S.O.S. interviews. Our archive for the original audio recordings and photographs is the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Q.S.O.S. volunteers from across the country conduct and transcribe these interviews. We appreciate their generosity of time and dedication to the project. We are always looking for guilds, organizations and individuals to undertake their own Q.S.O.S. projects and join us. Find out how you can get involved with Q.S.O.S.

About Jay  . . .

I was born in a little town in Pennsylvania in 1974. I was the last of six children. My father made septic tanks. My mother had a delicious hall closet stocked with remnants of fabrics and tins of buttons and bags of yarn. This was my favorite place in the house. My sisters were in the high school marching band and my brother was on the football team. I made myself costumes and twirled batons in the front yard. I suppose this is where it all started.

I studied Fashion Design at the former Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, now Philadelphia University, where I currently teach. I also studied at the London College of Fashion. While in London, I sold my clothes at Camden Market. I then decided I hated it and moved to Amsterdam. I sold at a few boutiques there and loved it but I was homesick and moved back to Philadelphia.

I put together small fashion collections in Philadelphia and sold at a few boutiques there. I moved back to the woods of northeastern Pennsylvania and opened a vintage shop for a few years. I discovered yoga. I auditioned for a reality show called Project Runway. I won the first season.

I met Molly Ringwald.

I currently live and work in Philadelphia.

    Oh how I want to go to the NY event. But that is the weekend of my guild’s annual show. I am hanging, white gloving, and de-hanging (a new word?). Take lots of pics and write a fab article for Fabric Trends about the whole shebang.
