Poetry is the journey of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance - Carl Sandburg..........Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject - John Keats .........Poetry is the breath and finer spirit of all knowledge - William Wordsworth ..........Poets utter great and wise things which they do not themselves understand - Plato .........No man was ever yet a great poet, without being at the same time a profound philosopher. For poetry is the blossom and the fragrance of all human knowledge, human thoughts, human passions, emotions, language - Samuel Taylor Coleridge .........One demands two things of a poem. Firstly, it must be a well-made verbal object that does honor to the language in which it is written. Secondly, it must say something significant about a reality common to us all, but perceived from a unique perspective. What the poet says has never been said before, but, once he has said it, his readers recognize its validity for themselves - W. H. Auden ...........Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash - Leonard Cohen .........There is a pleasure in poetic pains which only poets know - William Cowper .........Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood -T. S. Eliot ..........Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason - Novalis...........He who draws noble delights from sentiments of poetry is a true poet, though he has never written a line in all his life - George Sand .........A poem is never finished, only abandoned - Paul Valery ........A poet is a bird of unearthly excellence, who escapes from his celestial realm arrives in this world warbling. If we do not cherish him, he spreads his wings and flies back into his homeland - Kahlil Gibran.............Poetry should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance - John Keats..........To be a poet is a condition, not a profession - Robert Frost........A poem is true if it hangs together. Information points to something else. A poem points to nothing but itself - E. M. Forster.........Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo - Don Marquis...........Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things - T. S. Eliot ..........You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it tick. You're back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in - Dylan Thomas .........Poetry is boned with ideas, nerved and blooded with emotions, all held together by the delicate, tough skin of words - Paul Engle......... There is not a joy the world can give like that it takes away! Lord Byron

LAMA HOURANI at JA NYC Summer show


Nadwah - 23 July 2009


NEW YORK (July 20, 2009) - Lama Hourani, Jordanian international jewelry designer, will be showcasing her jewelry for the first time at the 2009 JA New York Summer Jewelry Show from July 26th to July 29th. Booth 1213A in the Designer Section of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.



Designing and producing jewelry since 2000, she opened her first art gallery and jewelry shop in 2004. All pieces are original creations, handmade as either a masterpiece or part of a limited edition design.
Celebrating both shared heritage and modern diversity, her collections are imbued with the traditions and civilizations of the past, re-cast as stunning amulets for the future. Lama Hourani is inspired by the primitive etchings and drawings adorning the walls of the caves throughout Jordan's desert as well as the country's rich archeological relics. The symbols are familiar, explicable and become a universal language that conveys freedom of expression, peace and unity without ethnic, cultural or religious barriers.
Lama Hourani will be featuring the following "art-to-wear" collections:
Lamystique - Lama's signature circles, an interpretation of primitive cave drawings
hand-stenciled on silver, gold or gold-plated discs.
Gypouin Revue - This collection is inspired by the native Gypsy and Bedouin jewelry
made with simple materials.
Bedu Chronicle - Multi-layer chains of different lengths and thicknesses embrace
charms with fine details.
Talisman ALAMA - Lama's charms contain stories and mythology of the
Mediterranean reflected through symbols.
Oriental Song - Various cultures in one mold - from Asia's South East to the Middle
- this collection is set with hand-carved jade from the mountains of South East
Unlock - This collection is inspired by ancient and modern keys, ancient coins,
archeological relics and totems of the desert to create the collaboration of old and new.
Geo-rustic - Incorporating her primitive symbols with geometric spheres, cubes and
discs on thick chains and tassels with semi-precious stones and Japanese silk.
Lama Hourani has been designing and producing jewelry since 2000, and opened her first art
gallery and jewelry shop in April 2004. She holds a bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, as well as
two diplomas in jewelry design and gemology from GIA. Additionally, Lama holds a master's
degree in Product Design from Istituto Marangoni in Milano, Italy. She currently resides between
Milan and Amman.
