It was so fantastic to be able to look around and touch the numerous models for sculpture in the sculptor's maquette studio.
Henry Moore's work table with flint stones, shells and plaster models - Hoglands in Perry Green studio in Much Hadham, England.
The sculptor collected forms which he found in nature - forms and shapes which appealed to him. Discovering resemblances to human forms or just plain objects like a skirt, for instance, he would then add to the existing form or combine different shapes, so creating a new totality. In Italy Henry Moore told me that the sculptures, in which he incorporated flint stones, were slowly disnitegrating.
