Ode to Barbara Hepworth

Instagram screenshot of post showing Barbara Hepworth at work - her head iand upper torso in centre of hollow curved form she is making in plaster.

Saw this image of Barbara Hepworth at work on Instagram the other day. Couldn’t help noticing a similarity with my piece ‘Barbara Seed’ from 2017 which I made in honour of Barbara Hepworth. A seed was sown in me many, many years ago when I first saw her work in its place of origin when visiting her studio in Cornwall. Thanks to a role model.
