5.0 out of 5 stars So you want to get started in clay portraiture? Aug. 28 2001
By Alexis
Start with this book. I bought this book when I was halfway through a sculpture workshop at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I learned so much from this book. Peter Rubino demonstrates two ways to "get started" and clearly shows techniques to help you figure out some of the tough parts of sculpting a head(like the eyes.) The photographs are clear and the text is direct. This is really a terrific book. If you are interested in getting started tn clay portraiture then buy this book. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing...... March 27 2004
By Arthur
I have recently beagan to study sculpting more seriously and received this book as a gift. I improved tremendously with the help of this book. I'm not sure how best to communicate the message; but i must convey to you the importance of this book to anyone interested in sculpting. Does anyone know if a second series is planned?

5.0 out of 5 stars A practical and detailed guide for all Aug. 4 2003
My wife and I decided to study sculpting together and started with this book on a recomendation from an art professor friend who uses this book as part of his curriculum. We have had tremendous success...what we like is that no steps or details are skipped as with the one or two other books we tried, so we do not get discouraged along the way...Peter Rubino...keep our momentum going!
