As inspiring as it is practical, this lavishly illustrated guide encourages students and collectors to understand the processes and techniques of figurative sculpting.
Written by a distinguished sculptor, this beautifully illustrated guide to sculpting the human figure draws on pieces from the Renaissance in particular to explain the processes and techniques of contemporary work. Among the topics covered are: the basics of sculpture--the studio, tools, and materials; preparations--maquettes, drawings, and working models; modeling and carving the head; relief sculpture; modeling and carving the figure; molding and casting; and scaling up. John W. Mills, who was trained at the Royal College of Art, taught sculpture for nearly two decades. President of the Royal Society of British Sculptors, he has had many major commissions for his work.
