Different Sculpture Materials and Media

There are different sculpture materials or mediums as follows:

Glass Sculpture

Glass sculpture can be beautiful and intense all at the same time, all while being designed in a multitude of ways. Some sculpture are blown, while others are broken up into smaller pieces with a mallet, only to be intricately placed in a mesmerizing design in another medium. From glass casting and blowing to lamp working and stained or fused glass sculpture, there is much to choose from to adorn your space.

Porcelain Sculpture

Artists work their vision into reality, starting as unglazed pieces of white ceramic or clay. The artists begin their sculpture with clay, then make it into a plaster mold. Once the mold is dry, the liquid porcelain is poured into it. Once the porcelain is dried and removed from the mold, it is fired in a kiln to solidify. Finally, these delicate sculpture are painted and polished by the artist.

 

We also have porcelain sculpture, and one of the most celebrated porcelain sculpture artists is Jeff Margolin.

Wood Sculpture

These natural sculptures are carved from wood using various tools and methods. Some artists have preferences for their tools, from chisels to chainsaws; there are many ways to create art. Fallen tree limbs are reimagined, or wooden slabs are combined to create entirely new concepts. Artists can use fire to color the wood naturally or paint for a variety of colors. Lastly, they complete their work with a varnish or finish, whether through cloth rub or painted or sprayed on.

 

Wood sculptures are among the most common, and Chasen Galleries has great collections. The wood sculptures at Chasen Galleries include the works of Shanti Yard.

Metal Sculpture

A metal sculpture is uniquely designed using any type of metal, from iron pours to welding aluminum or steel. A great deal of strength is put into these designs by heating up the metal, bending it to match their vision, and strategically welding the pieces together using one of three arc welding options; 2 different zig-zag patterns or crescent welding.

 

Metal sculpture are also very common and popular. Some of the metal sculpture you find at Chasen Galleries include artwork by Zach Gilliland and Alex Kveton.


Sculpture Styles and Inspiration

With so many options for sculpture, it is no wonder there is such a vast assortment of designs from different artists. So many factors inspire sculpture, and every artist has a different style. Some of these sculpture options include;

Floor Sculpture

The floor sculpture range from various heights, so it is important to visualize what size best fits the space you want to fill. The floor sculpture can be available in any medium, from wood to metal, even glass. Should you wish to embellish an entryway, a floor sculpture could be what you are looking for.

 

There are different floor sculpture, and some are the amazing work of Boris Kramer.

Wall Sculpture

If you lack the floor space for a floor sculpture, perhaps a wall sculpture is more to the space you're looking to fill. These sculpture include intricate three-dimensional looks, and your guests will definitely examine and enjoy the sculpture and all its depths.

 

There are different collections of wall sculpture you can consider for decoration or when thinking of repainting your home. Juan Giron and Ancizar Marin make some of the top wall sculpture.

Glass Wall Sculpture

Unlike wood and metal wall sculpture, a glass wall sculpture can catch the natural light and cast a beautiful shadow of colors onto the wall if that is your chosen style. With so much inspiration available, our artist's creativity knows no bounds or medium.

 

Glass wall sculpture complement wall painting effectively. Chasen Galleries has the best glass wall sculpture from artists such as Cathy Shepherd, Jacob Barfield, and Renato Foti.

Innovation in Sculpture

Since the first sculpture in time, art has continued to evolve. Each artist's innovation paves a new road for future artists to branch from. Over time, artists have begun to cross mediums together to create beautiful masterpieces. A wood sculpture base with a colorful glass tabletop gives art a purpose beyond vision.

 

If it can be envisioned, artists will find a way to make it happen.
