Figure in Clay, by Veronika Alice Gunter
Quick Overview

The outstanding examples range from representational to abstract, diminutive to heroic.

Each featured sculptor discusses the unique attractions and challenges of his or her method, and a series of detailed color photographs follows the artwork as it takes shape.

In addition, there's a gallery of contemporary pieces selected by the major contributors.

Nine master ceramic artists present their personal approaches to sculpting the human figure in a spectacular volume that's both technically illuminating and visually inspirational.

  • Nan Smith uses a range of mold-making techniques and precise slab construction. 
  • Akio Takamori coil-builds a simplified figure inspired by a Velásquez painting. 
  • Christyl Boger creates a lavishly decorated, classically formal figurine.
  • Glen R. Brown, a noted writer on ceramics, provides an insightful, thought-provoking introduction.
