Puttering Around the Art Studio
Charlie Maiorana, author
In this unusual and very personal book multi-discipline putterer, artist and sculptor Charlie Maiorana shares some of the techniques, art explorations, and insights gathered over his varied art career. The topics in this wide-ranging book run the gamut from simple instructions for making an umbrella ball and home-brewed gallery bags to practical topics such as his method for creating and decorating ceramic tiles and how to use an AirPen for acrylic painting. The book also includes a number of uncommon topics such as how to develop geometric sculptural ideas using SketchUp, and advice on how to take a creative walk around IKEA, home improvement stores, and craft stores.
