Would you like to take up modelling in clay, or sculpture in solid materials? Perhaps your burning desire is to make a portrait head of your child or loved one but you don't really know where to start? Maybe you are concerned that your ambition might prove difficult or expensive?
Ronald Unger dispels all these worries and carries you right through from the beginning to the end. Basic principles, materials, tools, rules, anatomy, design, figurative work and 'abstracts' are all considered. Individuality is encouraged and each step is carefully and fully explained. So this is definitely not a 'do it by numbers' book.
Begin Sculpture is not only a comprehensive text for the first-year student, it is entirely suitable for the beginner in practical classes or working at home, and for everyone who simply wants to create successful, original work and take part in this pleasurable and exciting pastime.
