For every taste and budget, a paperback


Sculpturing in Clay, by Janice Lovoos. Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.: Tab Books Inc. 214 pp. $9.95.

First, this is a craft book appealing to novices and advanced clay-workers. Abundant and excellently reproduced photographs, drawings, and graceful step-by-step explanations make the processes clear.

Second, it is a kind of art book revealing both the aesthetics and sculptural methods by which three principals of a California studio, ''Clay in Particular'' (a potter, a sculptor-modeler, a painter-decorator), produce small clay figures -- droll or elegant, natural or stylized, human or animal. The systematic treatment invites the reader to try sculpturing in clay for himself.
