How do you create a stainless steel sculpture?

Stainless steel art commissions, free work or garden statues

Designing and executing garden statues is inspiring as a stainless steel artist. As a garden image, the art sculpture usually decorates a beautiful garden. That is why it is so nice and challenging to work on a garden image. Usually there is a certain wish that the garden image may depict or radiate. The place where the statue should be placed is usually also known.But creating a stainless steel garden statue, award or a stainless steel art assignment is more difficult but also more challenging than making free works . Goethe phrased it well at the time when he stated: In der Beschränkung zeigt sich erst der Meister .

Design stainless steel sculptures

Before you start making a sculpture, there must first be a design. As a stainless steel artist-sculptor it starts with sketching. If between those sketches – it could also be a scribble on the corner of the newspaper – there is one that “something” follows the next step.

 

Stainless steel sculptures – 3D models

There are several ways to translate the sketch into a 3D model so well . Increasingly popular zis the way with a 3D computer program like Blender or Solid works an artist’s impression to make. The advantage is that it immediately gives an impression of the stainless steel sculpture in its environment. Still, making a small model in cardboard, plaster or clay is a lot of fun.

 

The image then literally takes shape under your hands. The materials and shapes feel in your hands give a value not 3D programs can provide. Which road I choose: after I make the most of the stainless steel sculpture a prototype cheap sculpting materials such as – wax, clay, cardboard or wood. 

Stainless steel statue as Prototype or Mock-up

If the 3D artist impression or model of the stainless steel sculpture is to my liking (and that of the customer!) I make a prototype. To see the design of the stainless steel sculpture in full size is always exciting. Are the proportions in large sizes also correct? Is the size visually correct too? The advantage of the prototype is that it is easy to adjust things quickly.

 

Making stainless steel art sculpture

You can make stainless steel sculptures or stainless steel art with various metal processing techniques. If the shape and proportions are in order after various refinements, the sculpture or art statue will get its shape by cutting, tapping, setting, bending and / or welding the stainless steel or stainless steel. Stainless steel sheet metal and stainless steel profiles are then the final material that I work with as a sculptor / artist.

 

 

Finish stainless steel sculpture

If the shape and proportions are correct, you also want the finish to match. A nice finish of the stainless steel is half the battle.  The so-called skin of the stainless steel can be processed in several ways.The stainless steel sculptures can cut or polished to be . After sanding, the stainless steel is polished with grease until the stainless steel shines like a mirror. I regularly contrast the polished parts with matt surfaces . This contrast gives visual tension and ensures that continues to fascinate to look at the sculpture too . Other finishes and so as directionless abrasive acids or stainless steel which brushed is to form a beautiful sculpture strengthen .

Quality stainless steel sculptures

Of course I also want the stainless steel sculptures to remain beautiful. That is why only the best quality stainless steel is suitable. This is the so-called stainless steel 316. A stainless steel type that is also used on expensive seaworthy yachts. In this way, a stainless steel art sculpture also remains beautiful outside. Stainless steel sculptures are therefore suitable for indoors (in the home or office) and outdoors (in the garden or public space).

View stainless steel art

In addition to my website, some of my stainless steel sculptures can also be viewed in several sculpture gardens and galleries. Please call in advance to make an appointment and to inquire whether the stainless steel sculptures or art sculptures in which you are interested are also on display.
