Plaster sculpture models in the back of my studio.
The seventies - Nieuwstraat 9-11 Zwijndrecht studio. Three of my large plaster models wait outside, while I was reorganizing and cleaning out my studio.

The ground floor of my studio used to be the blacksmith's workshop of Piet Buitendijk. He and Trui Staat were friends of my parents; and when they moved to a new factory on the Lindsedijk, I was allowed to use the workshop as long as it lasted - which turned out to be almost thirty years. Not long after I moved in though, the building was sold to the town because there were plans to demolish the whole area - an initiative of A.B.J. de Koning, the director of public works, who had most of the historic center demolished. I created a working group to stop him and after eight years the last buildings were rescued and sold to the users. So I stayed after all.

Later, in 1982 I built my new studio, which I designed, next to it (to the left on this photo).
