"Sculpting the Figure in Clay" is an all-inclusive volume that lays out an easy-to-follow step-by-step method of blocking out the plane structure and anatomy of the posed figure. Author Peter Rubino's unique approach utilises a geometric system consisting of blocks, simple shapes and guidelines, which instructs students in a new and instinctive sculptural style.
Peter Rubino is the author of The Portrait in Clay.
