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.

Yves Goyatton - My current body of work represents my fascination with the mystery of abstract shapes and their juxtaposition with human form.A My work has taken this concept most literally by combining the human form and the abstracted shapes of modern landscapes. aEUR"I am a process-oriented artist. The process is what drives my work from one piece to the next. I am constantly exploring my personal boundaries. I am inspired by all the steps in which art is made I am not afraid to face the difficulties the process requires of myself, so long as I continue to learn and grow from it.A The process allows me to conquer problems these challenges allow new points of departure for the next works. aEUR"I enjoy composing in a fusion between these two elements. I conceive my workA primarily as abstract with anthropomorphic elements.A It is important for me to begin with an idea, but remain malleable to the end result. It is most important to me that the piece reflects a refined aesthetic, which I can only describe when I am visually satisfied. This becomes my new boundary for the next work to exceed what I have done before without duplication. aEUR"The work ...
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. ...
