-- My teacher in sculpture has suddenly passed away --

By now, most of you will have heard the desperately sad news that Paul Carter died in a car accident near Gosford House on Saturday afternoon.

Paul was a highly respected and dearly loved member of staff in the School of Sculpture where he operated as a most inspirational catalyst at all levels. Many generations of students were attracted to Sculpture through Paul’s enthusiasm and passionate interest in them and their individuality. Paul’s teaching versatility, commitment to sculpture and his unique ability to inspire all he encountered irrespective of level, is a huge loss to eca.

I’m sure that like me, you will all feel deeply for Paul’s wife Kate and his three very young boys, Blake, Oscar and Logan.

What a sad message! A pity you could not go to the invitation on behalf of his memory. It is too young for loosing a husband and dear father of three sons! I hope there will be a successor for him but that will never be the same anymore.
