It was just luck that I found Georgette on a TV program, The Great South East, in May 2012. People making fascinating sculptures with her captured my attention right away. In our first meeting, I liked her artistic integrity and positive attitude so decided to be her student.
Since I was a beginner I did not have clear idea about my first sculpture. Instead of waiting for something to trigger some sort of eureka moment for my first art, I just worked a little by a little with Georgette. During the time, she continuously assured me I am on the right tract to making something good and any mistake can be transformed into rather nice things.
To be honest, I never thought about more than 5 minutes ahead while I was working on my sculpture. I was just enjoying being there; feeling clay in my hands, listening to music from the radio, and talking to people and laughing together. I still love every moment I spent in Georgette’s Art because my mind was absolutely there.
How are you Georgette? My sculpture has been delivered in Claremont and I love it so much. I’m not so sure whether I will colour it or not because it’s so beautiful that I don’t feel it’s mine. However, it is going to be my reference and my teacher for a while. My husband likes it too so he wants to keep it in his study. As soon as he saw the sculpture, he said “Oh, that’s mine” 🙂 I don’t know how to thank you Georgette. You’ve been so good to me.
I will miss your class so much and whenever I lose my confidence I will think of you saying “Don’t doubt yourself, always think I can do this”.
Please say hello to everybody for me. I already miss my sculpture class.
