Every material has an active presence and every material is susceptible to change. The task of the sculptor is to understand the natural properties of a chosen material, to know in the process of creation how best to work with, or against, its characteristics. In this generously illustrated studio manual, sculptor Oliver Andrews takes a new approach to sculpture, focusing on how the innate assertiveness of materials affects the complex act of making a sculpture.

From the Back Cover:

In this book I try to show how this assertiveness of materials interacts with the will of the artist in the complex process called 'making a sculpture.'

About the Author:

The late Oliver Andrews was a sculptor and Professor of Art at the University of California, Los Angeles.
