“The life brings colorful, but also bizarre and many-sided experiences every day” mentions the artist Thomas A. (Tom) Hoffmann. The pop artist provides some of these sides as independent: his supremely colorful furniture objects and light sculptures surprise with details; he stylized cool urban types with his funny animal sculptures that are as they are - and do not care about trends and change of fashion. Tom designed them as smart colorful animal figures. It started with some home-made Christmas presents. Later the artist remembered them in his studio and started to create: "Weird", lovingly detailed furniture objects and sculptures, where he embodied his love for the Flower Power Generation. Meanwhile, there appeared a considerable collection of individual, witty, often also provocative objects from his eccentric "Drags". All of them have one thing in common: they break rigid everyday rules and radiate good mood.

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.

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.
