Between (A) and (B),

In (A) somehow "pounding" looks incorrect.
In (B) "method of sculpture in which" looks fishy, to me it sounds as if we are talking about "sculpture in which" but I guess need to relook at the comments given by Paul on prepositions.

B looks good. I don't find anything wrong with the sentence structure.

B is my choice, A seems to be close but has a minor hitch in it. When we accumulate phrases separated by comma, we seem to have a ' , and then, ' this one seems to be totally out of place. correct me if i am wrong

Can someone elaborate on the use of in which? Why don't we use where rather than in which? why dont we use in that?
