I have compiled a book with information on my sculpture and other artistic creations. There are reflections on my approach to sculpture, both aesthetic and technical. The volume concludes with a catalog of all my sculptures in chronological order. The e-book (pdf) is available for free download at: https://gerrystahl.net/elibrary/form/form.pdf. It is available for free in formats for iPad (epub), Kindle (mobi) and computer reading or printing (pdf) at: https://gerrystahl.net/elibrary/form/. It is also available for low-cost printing-on-demand in paperback from Amazon or Lulu.

Most display the sculpture slowly turning 360 degrees.
The videos are brief -- less than a minute.
The videos help to display the 3-D form, the "opening up" of the material and the play of positive and negative space as discussed in my sculpture book.
The videos are silent. You can make the video full-screen by clicking on the square icon in the lower right corner of the video image. To return from full-screen, click on the same icon or press the ESC key.

To return to the originating web page, you will have to select its tab of your web browser again or use the Back button.
