    *1951, Architect and Painter

    Jochen BauerThe architect Jochen Bauer was born in Coburg in 1951. The last 30 years he belonged to the leading porcelain modelers of Germany. Since 1999 he devoted himself to architecture and painting as a free artist.

    With his outstanding technique he is famous in his branch as a great talent, while it always goes about putting a concept in the third dimension. In his own works he preferred naturalistic motifs, which he implemented in flowing shapes and expressive poses with a precise view.

    “The source of my creative activity is nature, the analysis of ecological connections…”

    Bronze casting:

    When casting bronze, artist usually applies the lost-wax technique which is dating back more than 5000 years. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

    Sculpture "The Book Reader" by Ernst Barlachs is shown here as an example:

    Ernst Barlach: Sculpture 'The book reader'

    Ernst Barlach 'The Book Reader' - Lost Wax Casting Technique Part 1

    First, the artist forms a model of his sculpture. It is embedded in a liquid silicone rubber composition. Once the material has solidified, the model is cut out. The liquid wax is poured in the negative mould. After cooling down, the wax casting is removed from the mould, provided with sprues and dipped into ceramic mass. The ceramic mass is hardened in a kiln, and the wax flows out (lost mould).

    For lower-grade bronze castings, the sand casting method is often used which, however, does not achieve the results of more complex lost wax technique in terms of surface characteristics and quality.

    A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

    While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

    The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
