Re: Big names in contemporary figurative sculpture

I have not noticed the name of Peter Schipperheyn from Australia. I also note that most of these names are modelers, ie using clay as oppossed to carving in wood or stone. There is a very big difference in my mind between the act of putting on or off of a piece of clay and the definitive removal of material. Givern an amature, a human model lots of us can do a good job of copying what is in front of us. But stand before a block of stone with no model and carve the same piece, now that is a challenge!
