Karen Ryer's review:In the United States, we have the misfortune to be woefully uneducated in the arts, particularly sculpture.
And even more dismally we get almost no education at all about stone sculpture.
Which is why I am excited about this new book by a stone sculptor and retired professor of sculpture at the University of Chicago.
Here is a book every art teacher must have. Anyone who works in 3 dimensions must read and absorb.
Professor George is a long-time customer at Stone Sculptors Supplies, and has an impressive collection of his own work in stone. For those of us who admire his work, it is no surprise to read this engaging, well-illustrated and informative work.
I am especially impressed by his choice of illustrative works. He has a masterful eye for sculpture and his analysis of each piece is unique and perceptive.
We are pleased to offer Professor George’s work through our website. This is must-own volume.
