布魯塞爾 Brussels CS Host Isabelle
上圖是布魯塞爾的CS Host Isabelle。她是位雕塑家，她正在工作室做作品，她做雕塑時非常專心，眉頭總是嚴肅地皺起，但當她放下作品，與別人聊天時，總是笑意盈盈，是個開朗的人。
This is Brussels CS Host Isabelle. She is a sculptor and she is in her studio working on an art work. She is very concentrate with a frown when she is working. She is actually an easy-going person outside the studio when she chat chit with people with a smile.
I fly from Warsaw to Brussels and land on an airport near country at night. It was a total darkness outside the airport at night time and thankfully Isabelle drove to the airport and pick me up.
Isabelle’s home like a village house in New Territory but in a grand version. It have 3 floors, lane in front and garden in back with a car park. She lives on the third floor and her apartment is decorated in style. Lots of paintings and sculptures scattered at home in an elegant way.
Her children are all grown up and moved out. I got my own private room, yeah!
Isabelle took me to the molding workshop in the next day. A molding workshop can make a sculpture in iron/bronze….etc base on the design made by a sculptor.
The people in the molding workshop talk in a foreign language (Brussels is the capital of Belgium. Belgium don’t have a ‘Belgium language’. Dutch and French are the two main languages used in Belgium) It’s a pity that I can only speak English and I can’t really talk to the people in the molding workshop.
There are lots of unique sculptures in the molding workshop and I have seen the process of mold filling and fixing. It’s an interesting afternoon：）
We then drove to Isabelle’s studio. Apart from selling her sculpture art works, teaching is another important income for Isabelle. The students are mainly middle-age women. Everyone was concentrate on their sculpture work and Isabelle was patrolling the studio and giving comments. It is a very free environment.
There are a row of trees outside the studio big windows. Looking up and greens are there, so beautiful!
Isabelle lives near country and public transport didn’t get to her home. Most people in her neighborhood rely on private cars.
Isabelle and her gentleman friend has a dinner date in a fancy restaurant and I would be ‘babysit’ by her daughter but her daughter said she was occupied in the very last minute.
In the end I became a huge light bulb and radiating strong light in the dinner date of Isabelle and her gentleman friend…
When I think back now, I should just cross the street and have my dinner ALONE in any restaurant BUT the fancy restaurant we were sitting in. I would have my private time and they would have their private space.
I really should have cross the street!
