"Out of sheer courage and zeal, and actually a little premature, I stood next to one of our biggest guns in shot in the city, and when she was fired again, I jumped in the Hui to the out hissing from the pipe ball! I wanted along with the ball fly into the fortress! During the rushing flight, however, grew my concerns. into you come easily, I thought, but how did you get out again? you will recognize you in your uniform as an enemy and hang on the next gallows! These considerations made me very to create. and as a Turkish cannonball that meant for our camp, was, flew past me, I swung myself on them over, and came, albeit without having achieved anything, yet safe and sound with my hussars to.

*1951, Architect and Painter

The 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…”

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

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.
