The Materials and Methods of Sculpture
The authority and completeness of the work, the dozens of pertinent plates and textual drawings, add immeasurably to its worth. -- Magazine of Art
Before the publication of this book there was a dearth of competent instructional books on the technical aspects of sculpture. Mr. Rich, a noted sculptor, remedied that need with this clear, comprehensive and precise guide to every aspect of sculpting in wax, plaster, metal, stone, wood, and other materials. Contending that a knowledge of materials is the foundation upon which real achievement is based, Mr. Rich presents a comprehensive treatment of the origins, nature, properties, and characteristics of various sculpting materials and the methods employed in their use.
