Dr. Howard K. Suzuki

Available Now


Over 270 clear, color photos and 53 pattern drawings show how to creature sculpture from soap, using simple wooden tools. You can learn to carve twelve well-known and much-loved dwellers of the oceans and coral reefs, including the clownfish, starfish, octopus, seahorse, penguin, orca, sperm whale, sea otter, manatee, queen angelfish, sea lion, and beluga. The projects begin simply with the starfish and increase in complexity. Carvers will produce soap carvings in low and high relief, in the round, single piece style, and figures created from fused raw material. Several methods for finishing and mounting are also discussed. Additionally, the natural history of these fascinating creatures is included.
