Bruno Lucchesi Sculpture | How To Sculpt: Tips
Bruno Lucchesi-Master Sculptor
If you want to learn how to do sculpture in clay be sure to get Bruno Lucchesi's dvd's. Wow, totally amazing. Bruno Lucchesi is an amazing sculptor who adds the bit of sensitivity needed to his work that makes it come alive. I own all of his books and consider him to be a master at his craft. It is more than understanding the human form though, it is also about understanding the spiritual side of an individual in order to "get that out". The Mona Lisa is a great example of that. We love it because of her expression. We gaze at it wondering and feel a deep connection. Bruno Lucchesi does that with the expression on a person's face but also with the gesture of the body. His work has movement.
In this lens I share some of his work, where to get his books and DVD's and some of my own self. Being a sculptor and artist myself I look for mentors. Bruno Lucchesi is one of my mentors, my muse. He does not know that mind you, I do that vicariously.
Bruno Lucchesi was born in the village of Lucca, Italy, in 1926. His early exposure to the extraordinary sculpture of the Italian Renaissance
Here you may just get the feeling that you might enjoy sculpting yourself!

Bruno Lucchesi, N.A., F.N.S.S.
Born in 1926 in the village of Fibbiano Montanino, Lucca, Italy, Bruno Lucchesi has been called “the last of the Renaissance sculptors.” As a boy, he worked as a shepherd, his first artistic imaginings demonstrated in designs he would carve out of sticks while tending the sheep. At ten years old, he left his home village to study at a monastery in Lucca, where he had his first exposure to sculpture as an art form. After a few years, he returned home to work on the family farm, throughout the Second World War. During this time he met a Yugoslavian refugee artist, who took Lucchesi under his wing, teaching him the basics of drawing and encouraging him to pursue more formal training. Lucchesi did so, enrolling in the Art Institute of Lucca in 1947, and completing the classical training there in 1950. Subsequently, the twenty-four-year-old Lucchesi moved to Florence and continued to study sculpture, working for the Paternino Reproduction Company, where he made ceramic models of various types of figures for the tourist trade and invented a new technique termed sfoglia, used for creating realistic folds and texture in clothing. He was appointed assistant professor of architecture at the Art Academy in Florence and so began a teaching career, which would continue in the United States, at the New School for Social Research and the National Academy of Design.

My Angel Took No Prisoners ~ a poem
by Kathy Ostman-Magnusen
I add my poems to all my lenses as they tell my own story as an artist. One day I am completely secure in my artistic journey and the next day not. Thus I write my thought and feelings in poems to mark the trail.
Lily could not speak
she could not breathe
fore she could not imagine herself
that found themselves
inside the miracle of
beyond an outside hope
of a spectators doubting eye.
Blindfolds of the mind
the passing clouds
saddest for our lack of
perception wrapped in plastic
changed after time
through a crows blind eye.
And all the trees are melting now
just like your lip sticked smile
that falsely accused us all
past this moment
lighten your load.

There will be no going past
The angel in all of us
is now sleeping.
and walked about.
Then after seeing no one had noticed
took the flowers from your grave
lined your travels
with the fabric of a vampires music
warning nature of disputed miracles
Unable to ask the correct questions
I took it upon myself
to inform that angel
her dying eyes.
The light spoke through the rain
a star trying to escape a black hole
there would be no forgiveness.
There is a message
that any traveling angel would concur
it was time
for a sinners tune
and a lost child's lullaby
to set its mark
So without further ado
that wingless angel
pulled up all the grave markers
that rested on someone else
their unheard midnight prayer
then melted them all
into the timid skyline
and Jupiter's silent
