Jürgen Götze: Sculpture "Dedication", Version in Bronze

The representation of love in an adaptation of Juergen Goetze is now available at ars mundi.

Before Goetze started working on his own, he had a 15-year career in the primary Porcelain Manufacturers of Germany. What was characteristic to his work even then (perfection in every spathe, the patient formulating of fine details and a clear view for proportions) has flown into his free work.
Goetze faces the figurative tradition, especially the representation of the human body. His style is also trained in the works of modernism of the 20th century. The loving couple, who are facing each other in intimate tenderness, can, therefore, be recognized as present-day at first sight. With "Devotion" he has succeeded in creating a work of great emotional density.

Edition in polymer imitation marble. Limited edition 199 copies, numbered and signed. Format 21.5 x 30 x 18 cm (H/W/D). Weight 7.4 kg. arsmundi special edition.

Bronze casting:

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.
