 Planes can be flat and planes can be round.It is important for a sculptor to understand the planes of the body. The combination of planes coming together to create form give solidity and a sense of volume to a work of art It is the manipulation of these planes to reflect more light or less light that create values (shades of grey) for us sculptors. Sculpture is the manipulation of light.

The artist below has made a career out of the manipulation of planes in her animal sculpture.
