Discover how a unique, figurative work of art is created

Every person is different and unique – that’s why I always create unique images and works of art, different from others.

A figurative work of art creates a beautiful place in your garden, home or business and is a pleasure for the eye. The stainless steel is also virtually maintenance-free outside and remains beautiful; it retains its radiance and clarity even after years.

However, a figurative work of art is not just created. I do my utmost to capture your stories, your ideas and wishes in this modern work of art made of STAINLESS STEEL. I will talk to you about this. I would like to hear what your wishes and ideas are. Together we look at what would fit best as a work of art or image.

After our first meeting, I make several small designs of the artwork to be developed.

Sculpture techniques stainless steel

These figurative statues are made of STAINLESS STEEL. By processing the stainless steel with machines such as a roller and a press brake, intriguing designs and works of art are created. Stainless steel can be processed and treated in different ways, resulting in completely different effects.

Stainless steel is an incredibly tough and strong material. It is difficult to edit, but the end result (if you do it right) is incredibly beautiful!

Stainless steel types

You have STAINLESS STEEL in various types and compositions. Some types of stainless steel are affected in an acid or salt environment. The stainless steel 316 type remains good in almost all circumstances. That is why I only use stainless steel 316.

Figurative statues of stainless steel

My figurative artworks made of STAINLESS STEEL are welded and sanded and often also polished until they shine and reflect like a mirror. That gives a feeling of perfection and exclusivity. Modern figurative works of art made of stainless steel can be very different designs. A figurative sculpture of STAINLESS STEEL is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, for private or business applications. The dimensions of stainless steel statues can vary from small to monumental.

Figurative sculpture

Figurative painting uses only 2 dimensions and only some paint to express ideas and emotions. Figurative sculpture, on the other hand, needs a lot more; it is much more material. Earthly materials such as stone and metal are literally heavy, unruly and use all three dimensions. All sculpture, whether it concerns figurative images or a figurative sculpture, is 3-dimensional. This applies to both wall sculptures and free-standing sculptures in the room.

Figurative sculpture

Figurative images sometimes have a starting point in the figurative world that is more and more abstracted. But you don’t have to. A figurative sculpture can arise from a sculptor’s idea or an investigation into spatial relationships between different volumes and shapes. In my view, a good figurative sculpture is intriguing; the sculpture is an eye-catcher, and it evokes questions and amazement.

Figurative sculptors

I personally love the work of sculptors from greats like David Smith, Tony Cragg, Constantin Brancusi, and Henry Moore.

How do I design a figurative work of art on commission?

When designing a figurative image, I always get to know the client first. Over a cup of coffee or tea, I would like to hear your wishes and ideas for the artwork. Maybe you already know what you want and do you have a concrete idea and design in mind? In that case too, I would like to hear your ideas and help us think about how we can best achieve this.

Figurative sculptures – small examples

If there is a click, I will make a number of sketches and designs for sculpture for you or your organization without obligation. I try to visualize what we discussed in the first conversation in the designs.

After about 4 to 6 weeks I invite you to come and see the designs. It goes without saying that you can then take other interested parties with you to my studio.

Small sketch designs in copper for figurative sculptures

Small sketch designs in copper for figurative sculptures

Usually there are one or two designs that stand out immediately. Which are immediately preferred. The final design is often a combination of elements from these favorites.

Real-size figurative sculpture design

Sometimes I make uprequest from the client first a mockup – a full-size test model of the design. This offers the opportunity to see whether the figurative image has the right size and proportions. You can also see whether the artwork outside in the garden also has the desired size. In this test model we can still change everything on the spot, so that you can clearly see the various options. Only when the mock-up is completely to your liking do we start work on the final version of the artwork in the final material.

Step-by-step execution of artwork

I also prefer to do the realization of the artwork step by step. In addition, I will keep you constantly informed. For example, I discuss the progress by telephone and you regularly receive photos and videos of the state of affairs. You are welcome to come and see the progress of the artwork in the workshop.

I make sure that everything happens as agreed. As a matter of principle, I don’t do stress, rush work and “big steps home quickly”.

After all, it must become a beautiful figurative work of art that you will enjoy for many years. The statue must remain for a long time and also remain beautiful. That is why it must be done properly and sustainably. Many customers enjoy this way of working.

When the artwork is ready

You can come to the workshop to see if everything has been done as agreed. And if you are satisfied, you can take the artwork with you from my studio. Or I can come and place the statue with you.

Placing the sculpture

In case you want me to place the sculpture at your place, we will agree on a date. We agree in advance what the compensation will be for this.

Possibilities of a figurative work of art

As an artist I design unique figurative works of art and sculptures from different materials. I usually use STAINLESS STEEL, but glass, bronze and Corten steel can also be used on request.

I like to use stainless steel for a figurative image because I think it is a beautiful material, but also because this material is durable, sleek, radiant and incredibly strong.

But whatever your preference, a unique figurative work of art is always created. Different and special in shape and material.

Because metal and stainless steel are so easy to work with, a lot is possible. On the website you will see several examples of what is possible. I make every figurative sculpture in-house and only dedicated professionals work on it. I have been working with these people for years. Just like me, they are driven to make the best and most beautiful work of art possible.

Materials

I mostly use these materials for figurative sculptures and artworks

  • Stainless steel 316 (stainless steel)
  • Glass
  • Bronze
  • Corten steel

With these durable materials I can realize figurative shapes, creating a unique and personal work of art. I only use the best quality material.
