Getty AAT: Processes and techniques by specific type


<object-making processes and techniques>


Refers to the process or branch of fine art concerned with creating sculpture, which are three-dimensional works. It refers particularly to carving or engraving a hard material, or with molding or casting a malleable material, so as to produce designs or figures in relief, in intaglio, or in the round. It is typically used to refer to the production of large or medium-sized objects in stone, clay, or bronze. The production of small objects in bronze or stone is typically referred to by a specific term, such as "stone carving" or "die sinking." The production of sculpture in wood or ivory is typically referred to as "carving," even though the finished work in these materials may be called "sculpture (visual work)."
