Original Reproduction: Reproduction
The „Abstract Bronze Head“ is modeled in a shape of the abstract sculptures.The abstract and asymmetrical shape of the face and the compact rear part extracts itself from a short and fast interpretation.The reverted mouth, the crooked nose and the eyes, which are only hinted at here, have a human character and vitality – although in a strange way. The narrow neck threatens to collapse under the burden of its massive and over-proportionate head. The reduction to the essentials is an established procedure in the visual arts, which prompts the most diverse interpretations. The essential is in the eye of the beholder. In contrast with painting, the abstract style in the sculptural and plastic arts became familiar in later years.


What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
