SCULPTOR AT WORK

making a quick weld in my old studio in Zwijndrecht, Holland

working in my old Zwijndrecht studio

In 1969 I was permitted to use the old Piet Buitendijk blacksmith shop across from the little courtyard where I made my first large sculpture, discoid form. Piet and Trui were my parents' old friends from the roaring twenties. Piet had sold his house and shop to the town and started on a new location because the old part of the town was to be demolished. After the sale came through I would have had to leave; but I wrote the city council a letter asking to be permitted to stay until the building was to be demolished. This lasted seven years and in 1978 some artists who were using buildings to work in, were able to buy them from the town as the times had changed and in the meantime an old town center, like this area was, was considered to be a positive reminder of the past.

Here I am welding - my eyes closed - to make a quick attachment before picking up my mask.
