What is a sculpture?
A Sculpture is described as a three-dimensional object made by one of the four basic processes: carving, modelling, casting, constructing.
The most enduring and, arguably, the greatest form of fine art known to man, sculpture has played a major role in the evolution of Western culture. Its history and stylistic development are those of Western art itself. It is a key indicator of the cultural achievements of Classical Antiquity, and became an important influence on the development of Renaissance art .
Even today, although continuously evolving, sculpture is still the leading method of expressing and commemorating both historical figures and events.
Sculptures represent the visible world as well as the imaginative world. Though many artists have their own sources of inspiration to start with, a more detailed explanation could be done through a categorial representation of them being:
Figurative art, also termed as figurative, describes sculptures that is extracted from the real object sources and so is, by definition, representational, wherein a figure or a basic outline is visible clearly. In relation to abstract art practices the term Figurative Art is used to describe a wide range of media that refers to the human or animal body, which could be as diverse as an installation, photography, sculpture, or a film.
What materials should be considered for a sculpture?
While the term figurative sculpture is generally associated with historical works created in traditional materials such as marble or bronze, such as the Venus de Milo, Michelangelo’s David, or Auguste Rodin’s, The Thinker, re- cently there has been a sudden shift in the overall language. Sheet metal is the most ideal material considered for a direct representation of any figure. Other materials include, corten steel, aluminium, G.I and stainless steel suited for outdoor spaces.
How to select an ideal sculpture for your space?
A sculpture slides between reality and fantasy, and the sharp changes in propor- tional ratios, make their representations reverb. Figurative sculptures describe the representation of the figure, however, altered, or distorted. Presented in sev- eral expressive ways. Figuratively speaking, the design retains aspects of the real world as their subject matter. This could very well be expressed in the terms of design, usage of varied materials or scale.
Any figure, male, female, or animal represents the transitory nature of existence. What it represents through its material is a plough through time. In a way we are creating everything that surrounds us. Contemporary artists & designers like us strive to explore its wide range of possibilities through a variety of new techniques and materials, we try and give it a new look through the digital pro- cesses of assembly and fabrication. The placement of them could be at an indoor or an outdoor space. Their abstract and poised beauty contributes to several elements apt for the interiors spaces and emulates subjects from the landscaped spaces. As a whole, a figurative sculpture creates a petrified ambience. One that is imagined and put together by man but contained and preserved by the spaces they are kept in.
Geometric art stands as an important feature of the visual language right after gestural and expressive paintings.
Attempting to depict the non-representational, non-objective, and some of the most philosophical and spiritual ideas, abstract geometric art dominated the 20th century. Various geometrical shapes governed the production of the ma- jor avant-garde movements, such as Cubism, Futurism, and Suprematism very rightly depicted in Pablo Picasso’s paintings.
Geometric sculpture showcases the beauty of mathematics in a permanent way. When we consciously erase and convert irregularities to regularities, manu- facturing from the simple mathematical lines, forms and shapes suddenly the designs become meticulously simple.
A clean geometry is possible with even a difficult material. Even though it is bent and twisted or perforated, the structure that comes as a result is incredibly strong, yet beautifully delicate.
Our technically brilliant team of fabricators make that possible for us. Breathing life into our vision. Every day, we strive to capture the essence of a complicated design and constantly push the boundaries of what is
possible, for materials and for technology.
Which shapes to choose from?
Different shapes can evoke different meanings. Combining these shapes in different ways can create entirely new meanings. For example, creating something out of abstract stars, rectangles and triangles could emphasize a call to return to tradition in an overall contemporary shape like the crescent.
Many sculptors encourage their audiences to touch the work in order to understand it at a more fundamental level. The shapes best felt might be the most ideal ones for you. For example in order to have a soft appearance fluidic designs are preferred. This geometric sculpture allows this deeper interaction, which communicates mathematical concepts of pattern and Our technically brilliant team of fabricators make that possible for us.

Organic sculptures are borrowed from nature.
The main purpose of Organic Abstraction is to emulate the germinal form of na-
ture. Artworks under this genre use rounded, fluidic, and free-flowing shapes.
By transforming familiar objects into nature-inspired forms and patterns, ab- sorbed by artists such as Henry Moore, that is how the world started classifying objects around us and get closer to nature. Here manufactured goods appear
as natural objects, something functional becomes something decorative, a sim- ple material is made complex, and the commonplace becomes unique. What an organic sculpture does in contrast to an abstract or a geometric sculpture is
it breathes life into the spaces, bringing the feeling of harmony and peace that
nature gives us when we are outdoors, blissful, and free.
The warmth and texture of the metal against what is otherwise a very natural looking piece is a nice contrast to the everyday things we see.
What is organic for us?
The greens around us, things nature produces. When referring to Art with the term Organic attached, we conjure up pictures in our minds of natural flow- ing things, a lush landscape, a gnarled tree, maybe a flowing abstracts stem of a plant. Amidst the flowing stream, rocks, weeds, and grasses, the mush- rooms, bonsai, and a seed. The intriguing layers that each new season brings. We study the intricacies in nature we come across daily, the unusual hidden worlds that are actually complete in themselves.
Macro and micro-organic occurrences that are ongoing constantly, natural progressions that pertain to the passage of time. Time reveals itself through rotted wood, new growth poking up thru dead grass, strata on the side of a mountain, an explosion of color, all these things show the evolution of our Earth.
We concoct these markings of the passage of time where the viewer re-lives
an atmospheric eerie memory in their relationship to nature.
These beauties and random complexities are translated into unique bespoke designs. Akin to nature itself each design becomes more dynamic and undying in storied form.
