When I was a child I spent hours at my grandparent’s workshop in Geneva. My grandfather passed away before I was born so I never saw him busy sculpting his massive Carrara marble pieces, but I was able to  admire the artwork and his working environment. I remember how special and inspiring the place was, the beauty of the tools and sketches still on display. This is the strongest experience I had as a child, and it shaped my way of looking at things. Today I take any occasion to visit an artist’s space with my children. Here’s some images of a recent visit we made to British artist Tim Braden’s studio in East London. The effect is still strong on me. I hope more and more children can spend time close to art and that they find it as stimulating as I have.
