Sculpture: The Art and the Practice (With the Riace Bronze Supplement) by Nigel Konstam With step-by-step illustrations, the book covers the various techniques of sculpture - modelling, carving wood, plaster, clay, casting etc. There is an additional section in this revised edition on his most recent discoveries relating to Ancient Greek casting techniques. The chimney he discovered on the Acropolis Rock in Athens (probably where Phidias melted bronze for his work) may change our ideas about Greek methods of casting, while a new proof shows that the Greeks started their life-size bronzes from waxes cast from living models. 228 pages, profusely illustrated with photos and some drawings. 19cm x 25.5cm paper. 3rd revised edition, 2002.
