Sculpting the Figure in Clay

In this volume, acclaimed portrait bust sculptor and author, Peter Rubino, teaches a master class in the essentials of figurative sculpture. Sculpting the Figure in Clay is an intensive, all-inclusive guide that introduces students to a natural, straightforward geometry that will help them become masters at forming figures in clay.

Rubino's unique approach utilizes a geometric system consisting of blocks, simple shapes, and guidelines that instructs students in a new and instinctive sculptural style. The book is full of informative concepts and easy-to-follow instructions. By following Rubino's approaches, students can learn to see figures as the basic shapes beneath the form. Two such vital approaches are BLT: Bend, Lean, and Turn, used to create evocative expression, and Three Ps: Position, Proportion, and Planes, for accurate representation.

Topics presented in this book include:

  • The Fundamentals of the Clay Torso
  • Observing the Model
  • Essential Materials and Tools
  • Sculpting the Female Torso from the Live Model
  • Sculpting the Reclining Figure from the Live Model
  • Sculpting the Hand, Foot, and Lower Arm

Many photographic reference poses are featured throughout the book to enable continued study.
