For thousands of years Bronze has been the most popular metal for cast metal sculptures. This material has been used for statues, reliefs, small statuettes, figurines and even furniture. Bronze alloys expand slightly before they set, thus making it perfect to fill in the finest details of a mould. The strength of bronze is advantageous for sculptural compositions when compared to marble or ceramics. Very few sculptures from ancient times have survived because of the value of the bronze. We can still gaze upon "The Victorious Youth" from 310 B.C Greece, or Chinese ritual bronze objects from the Shang Dynasty or African bronze sculptures from Benin Africa as well as Lorenzo Ghiberti's gilt-bronze doors of the Baptistry in Florence, many master pieces have been melted down over the centuries. Casting bronze sculptures can be done using lost-wax casting, sand casting and centrifugal casting methods. Each has it's advantages and disadvantages for artists to work with. Large bronze sculptures are usually created by preparing a small study model until final compositional elements are determined. Then a large final scale model will be created. Luckily with modern techniques such as welding bronze sculptures can be assembled from multiple cast pieces. Before this large sculptures were usually cast in one piece with a single pour of bronze. Of course a higher failure rate resulted. After a bronze sculpture has had its final polishing done many artists apply some form of corrosive material to get a patina that allows to control the color and finish. However many bronze works lost to meltdown many artists today and throughout history have produced fantastic and high quality sculptures. Names such as Donatello, Andrea del Verrochio, Cellini, Rodin, Brancusi, Archipenko, Henry Moore, Giacometti and Louise Bourgeois immediately come to mind when looking at bronze.

Ted Schaal - Lately I have been exploring the use of two enduring materials, bronze and stainless steel. I enjoy the juxtaposition of the primitive texture in the bronze with the mirror polished modern look of the stainless. Balance and symmetry dominate simple geometric forms. These sculptures are made to last through the ages with the highest level of craftsmanship and quality metals. Most of my latest work can be scaled up for public or corporate settings and commission inquiries are welcome. With over 20 years of sculpture experience anything is possible from desk top size to monumental fountains and sculpture. ...

Plamen Yordanov - I share the idea of an art that creates reality instead of offering its conventional model. I want to provoke the birth of view that go beyond the boundary of reality itself. These viewpoints stress an order that exist "a priory" in nature and can be developed again and again. This aspect makes the picture exist as a signal that gives the onlooker a chance to go deep into his/her life experience and mind. This is a universal signal to which the individual responds in un unique manner and creates his/her own reality. ...
Matthew Sudlow - For years I have dreamed of expressing the natural splendor of bonsai in the ancient medium of bronze. Of the three-legged stool that comprises my work sculpture, bronze and bonsai, I honestly could not tell you which leg fascinates me the most. Few words can express the joy that I have found in trying to create an amalgam of these three fantastic disciplines. This pursuit, which at times has felt more like an obsession, has enabled me to create something very reminiscent and familiar but at the same time entirely fresh and new. I am a self-educated artist who has become knowledgeable in many methods of bronze manufacture. The sheer complexity of the work and my unwavering preference to preserve the techniques of traditional lost wax casting, has made the task a daunting one. I have found myself to be as much an amateur inventor, experimentalist, and engineer as I had ever fancied myself an artist. The presented works have been sculpted in entirety. I do not copy or aEURoedirectly burnoutaEUR any organic material but draw solely from photographed references, my imagination, and years of enthusiastic study. Special care and attention has been devoted to rendering lifelike and...
Ho Baron - Inventing abstract figurative imagery is my calling, and for fifty years IaEURtmve been obsessed with creating surreal narrative bronze and cast stone sculptures, pen and ink drawings, photographs, and most recently assemblages. My joy is in creating whimsical, anthropomorphic creatures that lend themselves to scenario. My art is archetypal, exemplifying Karl Jungs theory of the universal creative unconscious. I model my sculptural imagery intuitively, the forms only dictated by their armatures, instinctually creating motifs that reflect my own unique and personal style. Recently my passion turned to sculptural assemblages. IaEURtmm uniting doll parts with locally sourced tree roots. Dolls are models of us, and the whirls and limbs of tree roots are reminiscent of human lines and appendages. Symbolically, the aesthetic merging is a logical union since we, like trees, are organic and share the cycle of life. Finally, in my book, Gods for Future Religions available on Amazon, I present my sculpture as a narrativevisual collection in a Jungian parable with each sculpture playing a starring archetypal role.
