Soap Sculpture (Emile or On Education Burned, Geneva, 1798) Savon, graphite sur bois,

Benvenuto Cellini, the renaissance sculptor, once lacked material to finish the casting of a metal statue. He melted everything in the house from salt cellars to silver spoons, and chopped up all the tables and chairs to keep a fire going to smelt the metal. The sculptor of today - amateur or professional - will never encounter that difficulty. For a few cents, and with the simplest of tools, he is supplied with a means of carving to his heart's content. He can start on simple models with no years of experience as a prerequisite. With the realization of possibilities in soap, sculpture has become as democratic as all art in its essence is.
Excerpt from "The National Soap Sculpture Committee”; annual booklet. The Development and Use of Soap Sculpture. New York, 1932.
