A unique look at this amazing and specialised area of ceramics; sculptures made from bricks. Very simply this book shows how an enormous pile of raw bricks is built into a block, carved in to shape, dismantled, fired and rebuilt in situ. The result is often a spectacular piece of public art. Gwen Heeney discusses every aspect of this subject from applying for funding and obtaining commissions through to approaching factories and the nuts and bolts of constructing and carrying out such huge projects. There is also a good range of work from artists, showing brick sculptures in the landscape, as well as in a gallery situation.
