Artists who have experimented with metal include Picasso who experimented with wire and sheet metal in 1914 (Guitar). David Smith also made his mark in metal sculpture in 1963 with abstract geometric works such as Cubi XI.
Louise Bourgeois, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Alberto Giacometti are other famous artists who have experimented with the joys of working with metal. Contemporary artist Richard Serra is known today for his minimalist and monumental steel sculptures such as Fulcrum (1987) or Intersection II (1993).
Metal sculpture is a technique that has been the world over since Antiquity. Gold was already used in Egypt for the creation of masks or religious figurines in East Asia. Bronze, another popular metal, was used by the Greeks and Romans to create life-size sculptures. Casting techniques improved during the Renaissance and even more so with the rise of modernism and industrialization in the late 1800s.
Thanks to more efficient and easier ways to manufacture, artists can sculpt original works in metal or copies of their existing works in other materials. The interest in metal lies in its malleability.
In order to create a metal sculpture, the sculptor can first, or example, create a model of his work out of clay. By using the lost-wax technique, he can then mold the wax on his clay model before heating it. Other processes exist depending on the metal used. If it is perfectly suitable for a modern, contemporary and refined interior, metal sculpture can also be exported outside for larger or even monumental pieces.
