Sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld remembers a life changing friendship with Sem Ghelardini. 

 

"The piece we are looking at, Psyche, I went on to do three metres high – these are initial models. Sem was quite close to the end of his life [he died in 1997]. He said that when he first saw my work, he knew I had something new to say; he wanted to tell me his belief in me had been fulfilled."
