As three-dimensional applications, sculpture provides a unique method for the surrounding community to connect and engage with art – a public dialogue rooted in the concept or idea that is represented in the sculpture. It is full integrated and in scale with its surroundings, creating a harmony between sculpture and viewer.
Types of Sculpture
Traditional sculpture was creating through carving or modeling a variety of materials including stone, metal, ceramics and wood. In the 21st century, however, sculpture has come to include welding and assembly of an even wider array of materials including, but not limited to glass, metal, stone, plastic and other found objects.
Upon meeting, we will discuss the type of sculpture and location you are interested in enhancing with a sculpture. If possible, a site visit will take place to examine its surroundings and how the sculpture will be integrated into a space as well as to discuss your goals and conceptual ideas.
The next step will be to work through the development process using a series of sketches, drawings and maquettes (small-sized, three-dimensional models) until we get a final, approved design that you are satisfied with. The sculpture process next moves into actual application in the final materials chosen and will be determined based on the location of the sculpture and the aesthetic you desire for the project.
