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.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    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. ...

    Avril Ward - Artist's statement. Creating has become an intricately woven part of my life. I must express nature, as it is my window to God. I must delight in the human body, a marvel that never ceases to amaze. I must express love and joy-this keeps them tangible in my life. I must trust my instincts and skills allowing them to lead me in the right direction. Most importantly: if my art can move a person to pause, think, smile, ponder, cry, laugh, be encouraged or give them hope, then I have served my purpose in life."

    Jacques Malo - A native of Cap de la Madeleine, Jacques Malo began his studies in fine arts at College and the University of Quebec at Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. During these years of training, he further explores the materials and assembly techniques of modern sculpture. In 1982 my artistic journey really took off, going away more and more of domination and the influence of my teachers of fine arts. The importance I attach to the spontaneity in the creative process was problematic in sculpture. Then I began to make an approach using Styrofoam as a material and the technique of direct carving, allowed me to shape volumes with a gesture so eager to be possible in size, the images arose in my mind. To get a solid finish and acceptable, I used the fibreglass, resin and paint spray. This artistic journey was the subject of my solo exhibition at the Imagier, gallery of art in Aylmer in 1984. The event'Sculptors at work' allowed me to explore other material, marble. Always with the technique of direct carving, I began to explore this area in order to truly know its challenges and achieve more, to measure my ability to overcome such material. ...

    Martin Glick - As a realistic sculptor I have often been accused of running against the tide of the more modern and abstract movements, but if you take a good look at the work the design is abstract. The look of the work may be, at first glance academic or classical, but the composition is very much in today's idiom. There is a strong sense of movement. Even in the symmetrical sculptures you feel as if they are about to move, like a stop motion camera. They all invite invite you to walk around and see the other side. There is often a strong emotional element and or a narrative. In some sense I am a story teller. Even when viewing one of my portraits you see the subject. Their history and personality is in their face for you to see and to react to. I have been told that my sculptures have something that is unique. There is a twist to the norm, a twist of the form, an emotional element that is mine. It is my heart and my particular view of the world. No price quoted on a sculpture means that it is at a gallery.

    Emilio Merlina - I was born in 1950 in the North East of Italy from a polish mother and a sicilian father. I toured the world until I was 35, then I returned to Italy and picked up again my old passion painting and sculpture. As for myself, I can only say thoughts and paintings, paintings and thoughts. Everything maybe useless, however everything is life. i?1/2The human being leaves its signs, graffiti, indian dreams and imagination. Now I only have left a few more possibilities to express the colors which are not. Only the sign, scratched, angry or brushed is the witness. The sign has passed from there and there it has lived.i?1/2 Emilio Merlina Some hear if a door opens Others hear a latch which opens or closes Others more they hear the Angel when he turns over a page of the Great Book From the novel Missa Sine Nomine By Ernst Wiechert I have words which relegate my hunger And the hunger which owns my body but which do not confine them I have words which are both my confined hunger and body By the Italian poetess Paola Lovisolo ...

    Andrew Wielawski - Art must communicate ideas and have them received the way the artist intends, reaching as many viewers as possible to provoke an emotional response. If you go for those who are in the know about artistic periods, about current trends, and about a symbolic language that requires training to understand, then the artist will miss a huge audience. The artist then becomes a slave to styles created by others. If on the other hand, you work towards reaching multiple levels of viewers, then your task becomes more difficult, and at the same time, more fulfilling. An artist who creates a language will not fit into any already existing niche, and will alienate those looking for something they already know about, like gallerists, collectors and museums. Creativity, however, is like water...it will find its way around such obstructions, and bring the artist satisfaction and a clientele that appreciates what they create without regard for what's in fashion. Most of all, this way of producing reflects the rarity of truth in a world mostly dedicated to superficial values. ...

    Harry Weisburd - Harry Weisburd is an Internationally Represented Artist, including, USA, Expressions Gallery, Berkeley, California,

    Paul Freeman - I am an artist working in ceramic and metal on a small scale of size. The works are lyrical and convey an interest in the benevolent character of human beings. The morality of the represented people conveys a feeling of pleasant engagement. I am inspired by people's everyday interactions, the good attitude that keeps society running. There is nothing that people of goodwill cannot resolve. I also paint and do computer art and have a degree in Master of Studio Art from Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney)....

    Sue Jacobsen - My "artist's eye" seeks both the extraordinary and the ordinarily-overlooked moments in nature, and presents them in a way that allows the viewer to see what I've seen--and loved enough to want to share it. My regional landscapes, painted in oil, capture the rural flavor of the Wood River Valley in Idaho where I've lived and worked for over 30 years. Previously, California coastal areas were my genre. My love of the ocean and its awesome infinity is equaled in the grandeur and peace of the nearby mountains --again, infinite subjects for my paintings. Just as my professional training in graphic design at Art Center School in Los Angeles served me well when I turned my creative skills to easel painting, this then enabled me to move with ease and enthusiasm when sculpture'found me', and I learned to see with new eyes--in 3 dimensions now! My sculptures are figurative, of people or animals, and I seem to have special ability to capture the likeness and personality of my subjects. While I consider myself to be primarily self-taught, I continue to seek out other professional painters and sculptors whose work I admire, with...
