REPTILE TO REEF CERAMIC SCULPTURE bY JILL MOGER
Published by The Langford Press
Could this be the very first book on the subject of reptile sculpture? Certainly it is the first such book to be published by the Langford Press. Jill Moger's book is not exclusively about her renowned ceramic sculptures of reptiles however as the title "Reptile to Reef " suggests. Her work depicting coral reefs is included in the book as are her sculptures of insects created using ceramic and wire.
The book begins with a foreword by the fine art journalist, writer and broadcaster, Anthony J Lester FRSA, in which he describes Jill as a 21st century master of her craft. Following this, "Beginnings" is a short autobiography which gives the reader an insight into Jill's early fascination with wildlife, the burgeoning of creative interest and the discovery of an innate talent from childhood.
The subjects of her sculptures are divided into chapters containing similar species with an overview and a description and one or more photographic illustrations of each. There is a glossary of terms at the end of the book to help the reader with unfamiliar reptilian terminology.
This lavishly illustrated book finishes with a section describing in words and pictures, the entire process of modelling, glazing and firing a ceramic sculpture.
