    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.

    An alloy of copper with other metals (especially with tin) used since ancient times.

    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.

    Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

    Cast stone
    Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

    Cold cast bronze
    Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

    ARA wooden copy
    In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

    Ceramic casting
    As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

    Bronze casting
    In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
