Host Erin Murphy: “Welcome to this week’s episode of Tower Talks! In today’s episode, we’re talking to Jay Hall Carpenter – a sculptor and artist who has contributed a great number of gargoyles, grotesques and other sculptures to the Cathedral, though as I learned from talking to him, that exact number is up for debate. You probably know his most well-known contribution, the Darth Vader grotesque, but his work can be found throughout the Cathedral and all around the DC and Maryland area! Jay is also our first artist to be featured on the podcast, so we were particularly thrilled to connect with him for a conversation. Please enjoy this week’s episode of Tower Talks!”
