TRADITIONAL SCULPTURAL METHODS SUBTRACTIVE - the SCULPTOR [artist] starts with something hard and makes a sculpture by cutting away, or subtracting some of the substance. The result is a SCULPTURE or a STATUE made of a single material. Traditional subtractive materials include wood, stone, and ivory or bone. ADDITIVE - the SCULPTOR starts with a lump of homogenious soft material, which he can ADD to if necessary by kneading on another lump of the same stuff. The result is a SCULPTURE or STATUE made of a single material. Traditional additive materials include clay (also known as ceramic), bronze (or other cast metals), plaster, and wax. MODERN SCULPTURAL METHODS - BEGINNING IN THE 20TH CENTURY CONSTRUCTIVE - the SCULPTOR can use almost any material he wishes, including traditional materials, and can combine materals,too. The only requirement is that he use NEW materials, that is, material that hasn't been used for anything before. He can put the items together any way he is able to: Glue, paste, sew, tie, wire, or weld. ASSEMBLAGE
