A Treat In Store Or at Least …In The Shed.

I get inspired when I see the workspaces where other artists work. After visiting a sculptor during one of the “Parels” (Pearls) events, I got not just a look at their art, but also the workshop where it was made. The Parels events are held at different times of the year in many neighbourhoods around The Hague. Artists, collectors and people involved in many other activities (yoga, aroma therapy, musicians, choirs, furniture restoration, churches, libraries, to name but a few) open their doors and homes to the public and share their hobbies/art/activities with the wider world of their neighbourhood or city.

Here the treat is that I also get to see the spot where an artist makes their creative choices, how they want to shape a piece, how to in this case, handle the stone and produce the item they had imagined within it at the very beginning. This studio is in a shed at the bottom of their garden, a perfect spot apart from the world to sit and craft stone. Magic!
