Mosaic Figure "Dragon"

In the spirit of Antoni Gaudi: "Trecandis Sculptures from Barcelona"

In the art of Trecandis the ceramic pieces are assembled into the bright mosaics. Coming from the 19th century and popular in France ("pique assiette"), today it is associated with the names of Antoni Gaudi ((1852-1926) and Josep Maria Juyol Gibert (1879-1949). They decorated the world-famous park Guell in Barcelona which now has the rang of the world heritage object. Gaudi's "Gagon Fountains" have a special meaning: a dragon sculpture whose shed skin was made up of brightly colored shards. Today, they inspire new designs, like this dragon by Barcino Design in Barcelona.

The Dragon is created by Barcino Design not least as a deep bow to the genius of Antoni Gaudí. It is a faithful reproduction of the famous gargoyle in the "Park de Güell." Format 21 x 7.5 x 19 cm, body polyresin.

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.

Bronze casting
Lost-wax casting technique

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.
