Rather like the missing ingredient from a borrowed recipe, nothing frustrates Sally Hersh more than a 'How To' book with great gaps left in the process. The author's prime purpose here is to leave no part of the sculpting procedure unexplained and to this end Practical Sculpture is a complete and fully illustrated step-by-step guide to the art of stone carving and modelling and casting portrait heads. The methods and techniques described within have been successfully honed through more than thirty years of teaching in the UK and France and are aimed at the professional and amateur alike. The projects described are well within an amateur's ability, without the need of expensive equipment. Much useful advice is given on creating an adequate workshop environment, with guidance on where to get appropriate tools and equipment. There is an informative section on the geology of British stone and a listing of stone and equipment providers. References on Health and Safety in the workplace also offer the reader essential and practical advice. The enthusiasm and clarity with which the book is written will inspire and empower its readers to achieve their artistic goals.
