Full title:  Ceramic Sculpture, Making Faces, A Guide to Modeling the Head & Face with Clay
By Alex Irvine

Sculpting the human face presents a unique artistic challenge—but this richly illustrated guide thoroughly demystifies the process.  Instructor Alex Irvine goes step-by-step, explaining everything from creating basic, rough outlines to surface refinements to finely detailed replicas.  Photographs of models and sketches appear alongside the actual sculpture, and a gallery of contemporary work inspires.

Alex Irvine is a working sculptor, instructor, and member of the Clayspace Co-op in Asheville, NC.  His work has been featured in numerous shows from SoFA to The University of the Arts to Baltimore Clayworks.  He primarily teaches intensive workshops on sculpting the human face.
