      • Product Description:

        A historical and technical guide to the materials and techniques of European sculpture, based on the collections at the V&A. Casting, carving and modelling practices are explored within a historical framework, from medieval times onwards. Each chapter concentrates on a specific material or category, including terracotta, bronzes, alabasters, plasters, wood, marble and stone, ivory, bone, medals, cameos, rock crystal, amber, jet and waxes. Beautiful colour photography highlights the collections and illustrates contemporary workshop practices. This is an essential guide for anyone with an interest in sculpture and is also a lasting celebration of the recently-opened Gilbert Bayes Gallery of Sculpture at the V&A.
