Short description:

Surveys the work of prominent contemporary sculptors and presents a guide to the techniques, tools, and materials of stone sculpture

Long description:
There is currently a revival in the art of stone sculpture-along contemporary lines-of the Golden Age in Greece and the Renaissance in Europe. Many noted twentieth-century sculptors are now working directly in stone. This book explains how to create modern stone sculpture, with hundreds of examples by today's top sculptors. Included are sculptures by Jean Arp, Constantin Brancusi, Max Bill, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and many others, illustrated and explained with hundreds of clearly detailed photographs. This is also a how-to book, giving specific, step-by-step instructions for creating stone sculpture; describing various types of stone, how to select and transport it; telling how to carve the stone with hand tools and electric or pneumatic power tools; and providing the methods of finishing the work. Contemporary Stone Sculpture is important for the inspiration of art collectors and working artists alike.
