Art students and ambitious amateur artists can turn to this volume for detailed training in creating original works of sculpture. It opens with extensive advice on setting up the workplace and assembling tools and equipment. Instruction begins with a how-to course on clay modeling that includes five separate projects. The book’s next major section presents five projects that teach the craft of molding and casting, using a variety of materials that include plaster in combination with modeling clay, wire, and concrete. A section on direct building presents two projects in which various materials – wood, wire mesh, and other objects – are applied to their frameworks to create finished sculptures. A final section for advanced sculptors offers five projects for carving – in soapstone, alabaster, limestone, lumber, and a log. In total, this volume presents projects for 17 finished pieces. Subjects include a seated Buddha, a female figure, animals, and several fascinating abstract shapes.
