Summary
The Elements of Sculpture discovers and isolates the attributes - from the most physical to the most ephemeral - that make up an essential three-dimensional visual language; the very elements that form the tools sculptors use to create their art: Material, Place, Surface, Edge, Texture, Colour, Scale, Mass, Centre of Gravity, Volume, Space, Movement, Light and Memory. By teaching us how to look at and experience sculpture in the same way that sculptors think about sculpture, Herbert George provides us with the tools for understanding and appreciating the three-dimensional object, and demonstrates how we can begin to communicate using the language of sculpture.
