They make hobbies of carpentry electricity or mechanical devices. But the woman who gets little creative satisfaction from cook- Noted sculptor Berta Margoulies: "Moulding objects with the hands is an instinctive pleasure that provides practical satisfaction and helps to overcome inhibitions." By GAXLE DUGAS NBA Woman's Editor NEW YORK — The housewife •no's looking for a hobby that will rovide quick release for her emo- ions, help her to overcome inhibi- ions . and give her creative and jersonal satisfaction can find it—in culpture. She'll have to make almost no nitial investment. To begin, she'll eed only a bread-board, some ,odeling clay and two or three in- xpensive tools that will enable her o get. into corners. But her most mportant tools will be her hands, articularly the thumbs. This advice comes from a woman rtio's a noted sculptor. Her name Berta Margoulies and her works re in museums and government uildings throughout the country. Jut in the beginning of her career, he worked on a kitchen table using pounds of clay that she kept moist in a scrub pail. Today, she holds a Guggenheim ellowship and an American Academy of Arts and Sciences award, ier newest work is one showing a r oman in a protective pose with wo children. It's to be cast in ronze and presented in October. 952, with a $1000 savings bond to American woman who wins top onors in the Carol Lane Award for iraffic safety. "There is real pleasure in mold- ng objects with your hands," Miss dargoulies says. "If you're not con- inced, just watch kids making mud ies or building sand castles. Sculp- ure, - because it fulfills a natural reative urge, is widely used for its herapeutic effect in veterans' hos- itals."' Best choice of material for home culpture, she says, is modeling lay or plasticene, a clay that does ot have to be kept moist. Flas- cene is responsive and since it's mpossible to spoil it, it's economi- al, too. It allows you to add or ake away from your model in order » correct mistakes. While you can work at your obby by yourself, Miss Margoulies links it's more stimulating to Join group. If one does not exist, or- anize it yourself. You'll have more un and the group work will teach ou short-cute and give you a place o swap problems. Many churches, schools and settlement houses are glad to provide for such groups. "Because beginners become so attached to the objects they make," Miss Margoulies says, "they don't want to give them up. As they learn, however, they discover that they can recapture and even improve upon their original work. It's only when you've done something of which you're really proud that you can think of casting." Casting sculpture isn't as difficult as it seems, she explains. You can "cook" clay figures in your own oven using a firing clay meant for this purpose. It comes in beautiful shades/ranging from a pale pink to a deep, earthy red. But if you dont want to do "home cooking," most communities have kilns at the "Y," or in ,an art museum or recreation center. "There's one basic thing for the amateur to remember in casting," Miss Margoulies emphasizes, "and that's simplicity in design.
