The Materials and Methods of Sculpture

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.
