Mum's got a Leach. I remember her buying it some time in the late sixties during a visit to his workshop while we were on holiday. I can't for the life of me understand why we didn't visit Barbara Hepworth's place while we were there - it took me nearly forty years to get round to going, but it was worth it ten times over.

Hepworth's sculptures are often so sensual they're begging to be touched. I was chatting to one of the curators in the garden and said it was a shame touching wasn't allowed. "Oh, you can touch them all you like" she said. "Not the wooden or polished metal works, and try to discourage the kids from climbing them but Barbara would have been very upset if she thought people couldn't touch her work". Wonderful.
