F. J. Glass: Modelling & Sculpture  – PART ONE

First part of a series of recordings in which students from the Department of Art work with excerpts from Modelling & Sculpture by F. J. Glass. First published in 1929 by Batesford in London, the book was intended by Glass as a practical treatise for students, probably also an attempt of a contemporary version of Vasari’s On Techniques (Le Vite de’ più eccellenti pittori, scultori, e architettori. 1550/1568).

The present recordings reflect on the instructions given for making different kinds of plaster moulds and casts of busts, waste moulds, and casts of figures in the round.
