Sculpture

In general, we apply the term "sculpture" to any three-dimensional work created by modeling, assembling or carving materials. They can be highly varied, ranging from stone to bronze, and from ivory to wax.

There are three principal techniques used in sculpture. First, melting enables the artist to create a work by pouring molten metal into a mould previously made using a model. Second, it's equally possible to carve a block of hard material or a piece of wood, thus removing parts until reaching the desired shape. Last, assemblage is used to create sculptures by gluing, welding or by joining together different objects.

It's equally interesting to note that the artist can also model "soft" materials, such as clay or wax.
