‘For weeks I have been working on the same piece of marble and I am not tired of it yet! For me stone sculpting is a welcome distraction from my hectic everyday life and it offers me the opportunity to create a three-dimensional form. Studying the stone is a unique experience and is exciting and unusual. Here I am aware that I am slowing down, becoming enthusiastic, and at the same time I am surprised how quickly the shape of the stone changes through my work. At the Scuola di Scultura di Peccia I am developing my practical skills, my technical abilities and aesthetical appreciation under the professional guidance of competent course tutors. Every day I am learning something new about myself and I am letting myself be spoilt by the ‘Cucina Ticinese’ (local cuisine), preferably in the company of my ever helpful and cheerful colleagues on the course.’
