This is a book that explores into two worlds, the appreciation of wood as medium for sculpture and a practical look of technique. The history of sculpting directly into wood is explored, illustrated with many classic examples of the art, from ancient Egypt to the twentieth century. But this book is also a vital resource for those seeking to create sculpture in wood. A complete description of the qualities and types of wood, tools (both hand and power), techniques, and finishing, complements discussions of the art form and philosophy. Also included is wisdom about making a living as a sculptor, that the author has accumulated over the decades. Direct Wood Sculpture is heavily illustrated with over 200 photographs, most in color, plus drawings of the tools need for sculpting in wood. This will be an invaluable addition to the sculptor or carver's library.

About the Author:

Milt Liebson is an internationally recognized sculptor and teacher of sculpture. He resides in New Jersey.

From Library Journal:

Many woodworking books seem to discourage creativity; one follows the author's instructions carefully and winds up with a project just like everyone else's. Believing that the ability to create is a basis to all humans, sculptor and educator Liebson takes a different approach, and his excellent book will certainly inspire anyone interested in wood sculpting and carving. Although somewhat academic in tone, it is extremely readable; Liebson's style is similar to that of a favorite professor. He places wood sculpture in its historical context and then moves on to discuss the selection of wood, tools, and equipment. The section on using hand and power tools is simply outstanding. A number of photos (most black and white) offer examples of many styles of work. Liebson concludes with a pragmatic discussion of getting started as a professional wood artist, covering exhibitions and marketing. This exceptional book will be a welcome addition to larger woodworking and applied arts collections.
