technical tuesday: Ceramic Sculpture: Making Faces by Alex Irvine

 

I had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside Alex Irvine at a weeklong residency at Arrowmont. He’s ridiculously talented and generous with his knowledge. I’m sure this new book will be an amazing resource! You can grab a copy here: http://www.amazon.com/Ceramic-Sculpture-Making-Faces-Modeling/dp/1454707763

Make sure to check out more of Alex’s work on his website as well.
