About the Author:

Sally Hersh was an established Sculptor of some forty years experience. Initially well known for her lifelike portrait heads she moved on to express her artistry in stone; carving marble, limestone and alabaster into tactile life and organic forms. Her broad experience enabled a long and successful teaching career in both the UK and France and her prominent commissions have taken her sculpture worldwide. Sally was widely sought after for the beautiful stone and slate Sundials she created for public and private locations in the UK, Europe and the USA. She was endowed with British Sundial Society awards and created, amongst other commissions, the centrepiece Sundial at The Rothermere American Institute, Oxford University, to commemorate the life of Princess Margaret. Sally died in 2010, shortly after completing this book.

Book Description The Crowood Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book.
