The structure of a play is always the story of how the birds came home to roost. – Arthur Miller

The Texture is one of the most fundamental elements of three-dimensional art. It is an element that needs to be carefully considered by sculptors. The texture is related to the material used–marble, wood, clay, bronze, brass, iron. steel, or plaster, for example– as well as the process: casting, carving, construction, or welding. In addition to the material and the process, the final surface treatment offers even more textural possibilities.
