Stainless Steel Sculptures: Durability and Aesthetics
Stainless steel is a high-end, high-value material that is ideal for the Modern art collector looking for visually striking and long-lasting sculptures. My sculptures are made from very high-grade 316L stainless steel and mirror polished to perfection. This material offers a unique combination of durability and visual appeal and is resistant to rust, corrosion, and other forms of degradation. This makes this material suitable for indoor and outdoor sculptures, while its shiny and reflective surface creates a sense of movement and dynamism. Additionally, stainless steel is 100% recyclable, and is mostly made from scrap metal, making it an environmentally friendly option. With its durability, visual appeal, and versatility, stainless steel is a popular medium among contemporary artists and a top choice for art collectors.
Crystal Art Sculptures: A Fusion of Ancient Techniques and Modern Aesthetics
Crystal art is a luxury material prized for its beauty and durability. Made from high-quality crystal oar, it offers a unique combination of transparency, colour and brilliance. Similar to the Lalique French crystal or the Liuli Chinese crystals, this is a revival of artisanal skills of ancient crystal art. This lost-wax casting technique, similar to bronze sculptures, has a lineage stretching back thousands of years, first making its appearance in the 11th century BC. The process of making crystal art is similar to bronze but not as forgiving and the techniques have been passed down from generations. This makes it the perfect material for creating stunning sculptures that are both beautiful to look at and built to last.
Another major advantage of crystal art is its durability. Unlike some other materials, crystal is extremely resistant to scratches, chips, and other forms of damage. This means that a crystal sculpture can be enjoyed for years without showing any signs of wear and tear. I have opted for a slightly frosted finish to give the sculpture a vintage look. The end colour is made from infusing different types of metal and minerals in the casting process, therefore capturing the swirls and movement of the colour textures within the sculpture.
Crystal art is an exceptional material for creating sculptures that are both beautiful and durable. Its unique combination of transparency, colour, and brilliance, combined with its resistance to damage, makes it the perfect choice for art collectors and enthusiasts looking for high-end, luxury pieces. The ancient lost-wax casting technique and the infusing of different types of metal and minerals in the casting process, makes it a unique and exclusive art form.
