This book is for anyone interested in making art in 3-D, either with someone else or alone. There are so many materials, both found and specialty, that are perfect for art making in the round. The main point of this book is to inspire you to find new ways to use these materials and to make these lessons your own.

Taking a risk is part of working three-dimensionally. It’s always a little tougher to get your art to stand up or stick out or hang from a ceiling. Go out on a limb and try your idea! It may not work the very first time, but with a little patience and a second try, it can be the best thing you have ever done. In this chapter, I outline what you will need to set up a studio and some ideas for working with others.
