Adrian Golban Sculpture I: Facial Elements


For each of the ear, mouth/nose, and eye:

  • Make a base
  • Create the outline
  • Build the face element

For the skull:

  • Understand the anatomy of the face
  • Measure and replicate the proportions and angles of the face
  • Start with the large shapes and then move to the details


Students can work in pasticine or clay. Plasticine will not dry out, doesn't need to be fired, and can be used to make a mold. Clay tends to dry out, it will need to be fired which sometimes can lead to cracking, but it is more affordable. 

If you have any questions, please contact us and Adrian will be happy to advise.
