Jeff Buccacio has achieved an accomplished career in sculpture design. Jeff maintains a productive and energetic team of artists and efficient atmosphere as a result of his figurative sculpture teaching experience in Los Angeles, California. Many of Jeff’s extremely talented students have since furthered their career in sculpting as independent artists as well as working for top notch sculpture and effects studios across the country.
The Human Anatomy for Artists
“The artist expression of the figure must be based on decision through knowledge.” E.G. – A quote taken from the book, Human Anatomy for Artists, the Elements of Form, by Eliot Goldfinger. Throughout Jeff Buccacio’s teaching career at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts, Jeff would incorporate this highly recommended book as reference material to his students in his figurative sculpture program. Jeff explains the importance of quick sketch sculpture of mass concepts and how it is the key to improving your sculpture skills. Edouard Lanteri, a renowned teacher, sculptor, and close friend of Rodin (Rodin called him “”my dear master, my dear friend””), makes it possible for serious students to gain the requisite skills needed for figurative sculpture and to bridge the gap between artistic concept and figurative realization. Modelling and Sculpting Animals, together with its companion piece, Modelling and Sculpting the Human Figure, is the classic thesis on the techniques of figurative sculpture. Representing at least three thousand years of studio traditions, this readily understandable, authoritative guide is a goldmine of technical information.

Mass Conceptions of the Figure, Head and Hand should be referred to when sculpting both the human and animal figure. Edouard Lanteri has published many books focusing on the human and animal mass concepts. “These inspirational books below are a must have in your constant sculpture reference library,” explains Jeff Buccacio.
Jeff has spent most of his life in a studio atmosphere and has been grateful to have been surrounded by the most talented sculptors, artists and foundrymen. Primarily a Sculptor, Jeff was also exposed to the other key elements in the fabrication of a finished bronze piece of art. Buccacio Sculpture Services offers complete sculpture services to clients, taking their idea from “design to installation,” and all aspects of the design are completely fabricated at the Buccacio Studio and Foundry location in Canton, MA.
Buccacio Sculpture is proud to be in collaboration with Paul Cavanagh, a Master Foundryman and Owner of Paul King Foundry, located in Providence, RI.
