Iron Sculpture by Steel sculpture

History of Iron Sculpture

Iron sculptures have been a staple art form in civilizations all over the world since ancient times. Ancient Egyptians used gold to create masks for the royal deceased, while the Byzantines and East Asian cultures used gold to create small religious works. Bronze sculptures also have a rich history. China and India are known for larger scale bronze religious statues, but the Greeks and Romans expanded the use of this medium to create life-sized figurative sculptures. During the Renaissance, Western Europe experienced a renewed interest in bronze sculpture and casting techniques. The rise of modernism and industry in the late 1800s led to facilitated methods of production, allowing artists to produce more copies of their metal sculptures and experiment with different styles, including Impressionism and Cubism. Today, sculptors work with a variety of metals, ranging from bronze and steel to iron and copper alloys. The malleability of each metal determines which styles and forms with which these artists experiment.

Metal Sculpture Techniques
Sculptors who work with bronze usually use the lost-wax technique. This method requires the artist to create a model of their intended work out of a softer material such as clay. The artist molds wax on this model, adds another layer of clay, and heats the sculpture to melt the wax. The resulting cast is filled with molten bronze, cooled, and then chipped away until only the bronze work remains. Similar metalworking casting processes include sand casting and plaster mold casting, in which the models are made of sand and plaster, respectively. Artists who create larger pieces, such as outdoor metal sculptures, cast the work in separate pieces and weld each part together. Finishes can be applied to metal sculptures after they are polished to control textures and colors.

Artists Known For Metal Sculpture
Richard Serra is known for his minimalist sheet and scrap metal sculptures like “Tiled Arc” (1981) and “Torqued Ellipse IV” (1998). Pablo Picasso also experimented with wire and malleable sheet metal to create metal wall art sculptures like “Guitar” (1914). David Smith is known for his abstract geometric works like “Cubi XI” 1963, while Alexander Calder created mobile sculptures that hung on ceilings or drifted in the wind. Calder’s signature abstract style also translated well into large outdoor metal sculptures, like “La grande Vitesse” (1969). Auguste Rodin is recognized for his mottled bronze sculptures, most notably “The Thinker” (1902) and “The Three Shades” (1886). Constantin Brancusi, also a bronze sculptor, created highly polished works like “Bird in Space” (1928). Other bronze sculptors include Donatello, Phidias, Myron, and Polykleitos. Other artists known for creating metal sculptures include Isamu Noguchi, Louise Bourgeois, Sir Anthony Caro, Mark di Suvero, Henri Matisse, Henry Moore, Edgar Degas, Alberto Giacometti, Jacob Epstein, and Umberto Boccioni.

On vacation, steel sculpture by NP by Steel sculpture

On Vacation is welded steel sculpture by Nikola Pantovic sculptor, with symbols of the sea. It is a play between diver and fish, cloud, and flower. I take tuna fish for the model from Salvador Dali's painting tuna fishing.

I make a change from hunting to playing, the diver doesn't hunt fish anymore. Now they are in a hug and in play. 

For material I use steel and brass. My technique is directly welding steel and directly welding brass.

I use different metal materials to describe emotions in sculptures, as I use colors too.

Whole sculpture is painted in blue color, the tone of color is between indigo and dark blue. 

Accent are on the arm of the diver, it is the polished brass part.

Dimension: height - 66cm width - 70cm

depth - 20cm

Aluminum painting by Nikola pantovic

"Start" is the name of the image, relief crafted in aluminum. Figure precedes another work in the same version that is golden in color and slight differences in treatment. The picture shows a start time of creation, the birth of something that until that moment lived below the surface. It can be anything. All that the human mind thinks that is of God.
Artistic inspiration, visual artist, the artist's struggle, the fear that has to overcome, the skills they need to overcome, an experience that should be collected. All this opens up from the very depths of the interior of the artist's body. In this case, the red color represents the blood of a living organism and therefore the body of the artist. Below is a moment when the interior opens up in the middle of things. He gathered the strength to pages of images, its exterior, and repent in Outer reality one operation to yourself and it's open. This joyous act that lies within all of us and awaits us.



"Početak"je naziv slike , reljefa uradjenog u aluminijumu. Slici prethodi još jedan rad u istoj izvedbi koji je zlatne boje i male razlike u tretmanu. Na slici je prikazan početak trenutka stvaranja, rađanja nečega što je do tog trenutka živelo ispod površine. U pitanju moze biti sve. Sve ono što ljudski um smatra da je od Boga.
Umetničko nadahnuće, umetničko delovanje,umetnikova borba, strah koji treba da nadvlada, znanje koje treba da savlada, iskustvo koje treba da sakupi. Sve to se otvara iz dubine unutrašnjosti samoga umetnikovog tela. U ovom slučaju crvena boja predstavlja krv kao živi organizam a samim tim i telo umetnika. Prikazan je trenutak kada se unutrašnjost otvara u središtu stvari. Skupivši snagu da od stranica slike, njene spoljašnosti, obrati se u spoljašnu stvarnost jednim aktivnim delovanjem na sebe samoga a to je otvaranje. Taj radostan čin koji leži u svima nama i očekuje nas.
