How do you create a stainless steel sculpture?

Stainless steel art commissions, free work   or garden statues

Designing and executing garden statues is inspiring as a stainless steel artist. As a garden image, the art sculpture usually decorates a beautiful garden. That is why it is so nice and challenging to work on a garden image. Usually there is a certain wish that the garden image may depict or radiate. The place where the statue should be placed is usually also known.But creating a stainless steel garden statue, award or a stainless steel art assignment is more difficult but also more challenging than making free works . Goethe phrased it well at the time when he stated: In der Beschränkung zeigt sich erst der Meister .

A design for a stainless steel art statue

To a stainless steel art sculpture make you have a design need . Sketches  on a newspaper or napkin – for a sculptor usually starting point. If there is something in between that appeals, the next phase will come.


Stainless steel art sculptures – small models

You try to make a 3D model of the sketch as well as possible. This can be done in the computer with a 3D program. It often works faster (and more fun) to just make it from cardboard, wax or wood. Feeling the material in your hands gives a dimension that 3D programs do not have. 3D programs, on the other hand, can display the weather very realistically, as if the sculpture or art statue was already made of stainless steel.So it almost always starts with a number of sketches that end up in small scale models made of cardboard. Then I first make a mock- up or prototype of cheap sculpting material such as wax, clay, cardboard or wood for most stainless steel art statues or stainless steel sculptures .

Stainless steel statue as Prototype or Mock-up

If the 3D artist impression or model of the stainless steel sculpture is to my liking (and that of the customer!) I make a prototype. To see the design of the stainless steel sculpture in full size is always exciting. Are the proportions in large sizes also correct? Is the size visually correct too? The advantage of the prototype is that it is easy to adjust things quickly.

For stainless steel art you use a variety of metal processing techniques. When the design has crystallized and the proportions are correct, we give the stainless steel sculpture its final shape by processing the stainless steel . Processing techniques include rolling, cutting, tapping, setting and / or welding. The stainless steel material I use to make the stainless steel sculpture are stainless steel sheet metal and stainless steel profiles . Those are the materials that a stainless steel sculptor use.

Quality stainless steel sculptures

To ensure that the sculptures remain beautiful, I use the best quality stainless steel. The used stainless steel of stainless steel Sculptures has the quality 316 (stainless steel 316) which is suitable for the most severe conditions. This means that an art sculpture also remains beautiful outside. Stainless steel works of art can therefore be placed inside the home or office as well as outside in the garden or public space.

View stainless steel art

Besides on the internet my stainless steel sculptures can also be found in various sculpture gardens and art galleries. If you want to visit it, it is best to make an appointment in advance and inquire whether the stainless steel sculpture or art statue you want to see is also on display.
