Work in Marble for Helaine Blumenfeld
November 25, 2011 § Leave a comment
In 2010, I worked for Helaine Blumenfeld on a series of monumental sculptures in white Carrara marble. Ms Blumenfeld is one of the most amazing persons … and artists I have met and worked with. She has created over fifty large-scale public commissions. She was elected member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and in 2009 the Financial Times described her work as “the Henry Moores of the future.”
Helaine is the first-ever woman to win the Premio Pietrasanta nel Mondo… a prestigious international sculpture prize. She divides her time between Cambridge and Pietrasanta, where she has a studio. The city of Pietrasanta gave her the honor of a solo exhibition in the Piazza del Duomo, the town’s main square. It was a privilege and an honor for me to be a part of Helaine Blumenfeld’s artistic process – it’s been an unforgettable experience that challenged and stimulated me deeply.
