During my recent visit to Germany my sister Ilse and I visited Tony Cragg's Sculpture Park "Waldfrieden" in Wuppertal Germany, and Tony, very wonderfully, took us around explaining his fantastically made sculptures.
He built a big glass Box as an international exhibition hall for sculpture on top of one of the hills.
The whole Park with the Café and shop and exhibition Cristal Box, is wonderful and stays in our mind.
The Cragg Foundation has renovated an anthroposophic villa by Franz Krause (1946) and created an exhibiton centre for showing sculpture outside and inside the building

Ryan, my gardener, pulling from the street a huge Samaan tree, which they brought me from the Golfcourse. Nobody could do that alone, but Ryan who is determined and loves hard tasks. I did not want to make any big sculpture again, but when I saw that tree lying down, I just had to have it, and from the desire, amazingly here is the tree. I wonder what it could be.

4th of March, lunch at Hotel San Juan, with the sculptors with whom I am going to exhibit in November in Santiago de Cuba
from left, Berengues, Julio Carmenate, Tamayo Zomora, Montero, Luise, Xiomara, Duniesky, and driver Jorge
I was introduced to Xiomara Gutiérrez Valera and the Taller Cultural by ceramicist Lewis Belgrove (see Cuban Art- page 3), after I saw his work and Lescay's (see Cuban Art- page 1) work in an exhibition, which enthused me enormously.
I also did some work at the Fundación Caguayo with El Chino, surrounded by huge heads, hands, casts and molds and monumental sculpture by Lescay. I now work with Duniesky, who is forever enthusiastic, encouraging and his creativity is astounding. I watch Xiomara's wonderful ceramic sculptures, Berengue's wild creations and Tamayo's beautiful paintings. And now it is a tremendous honour to show with these sculptors of the Taller Cultural, whom I admire. To work among these artists makes me feel to be in the centre of the world of art and particularly the world of sculpture.
