Reproduction marble sculpture in modern times has mostly been made from resins, but these materials have limitations and can deteriorate quickly, and they feel plastic to the touch, not to mention the environmental damage they can cause.
With the technical expertise and support of the artists and craftsmen employed by Sculptured Arts Studio we set about to produce a sculpture range, made in limited numbers and when finished each piece would stand within the finest of interiors or collections, authentic to the eye, smooth and cold to the touch, with fine crisp detail, exactly like an original.
Our sculpture is produced by a unique and proprietary dry casting process that we developed. We use white Carrara marble and over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural marble which gives it a look and feel of natural marble.
We finish all sculptures by hand and can finish the sculpture in many patinas from new to ancient.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Plating
Exclusive to sculptured arts, we are able to coat sculptures with precious metals such as gold, silver and bronze. It is the skilful and labour intensive process, which gives a quality of finish that would stand above in the finest of interiors. We use the finest precious metals, state of the art technology, years of arts and crafts skills, to make the most luxurious art products. They are heavy, and feel priceless to the touch.
We make them to such a high level of quality, that our work can also be hallmarked by the Birmingham assay office, but there is a an added cost for this service.
Metal Finished Sculpture
Unique to Sculptured Arts Studio we can now produce a vast variety of metal finishes, including Bronze, Green Bronze, Blackened Bronze, Copper, Guilt, Nickel Silver, Brass, Steel, Iron, Aluminium, and Lead.
We have developed a system where as we can now lay, layers of actual pure metals onto any surface, and then we can work the surface the same as a foundry cast bronze to produce the colour or patina of choice using traditional methods and chemicals.
Because the surface is layered with actual metal it is indistinguishable from a foundry cast metal, by the look and feel, and at a fraction of the price.
They are heavy, and feel priceless to the touch.
