Emergence Of A Bronze Sculpture

Completion
A special protective coating ensures that the natural aging process, not proceed at outdoor locations. This surrounds the sculpture completely and prevents any further change, proved by tests in the weather chamber.
Emergence Of Bronze Sculpture    

Finishing
A finish, as if the sculpture already have been outside for several years, is the goal of our developed and kept secret Patination. Due to brushing and grinding it finally gets the final surface structure.

Precision Work
Now the tedious precision work of the engraver starts. With chisel, file and punches the blank is elaborated. All operations such as grinding, welding, filing, etc. made ​​entirely by hand since no machine can replace the hand of the artisan.

Removal Of Fireclay
Sprue, risers and exhaust tubes can now be removed from the blank.

Fireclay
The wax model (For each figure a separate model must be produced) contains core and cladding made ​​of gypsum and fireclay. A cast iron skillet and nails support the resulting shaped block which is then heated up for a week in a walled furnace. Slowly and gradually melts the wax (hence lost wax).

From Ancient To Modern Times

Antique Bronze Art 

For two generations, family Rottenecker deals with one of the oldest crafts ever, the art casting. The purpose is the production of a copy or dimensional object in real bronze. 

Bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, with no or only very minor additions of other elements, is considered one of the first by people created and used alloys. They were masters of their craft and in society highly regarded: the bronze caster.

 

 Antique Bronze Art They mixed copper with tin and got a metal that they could form at will to weapons, tools and jewelry. The advantage of Bronze is, that it is very corrosive and seawater resistant and resistant to wear. To gain access to the valuable raw materials, people operated across thousands of miles away. Bronze meant wealth, prestige and power. The material was then for the people so important that it has given its name to an entire era: the Bronze Age. The production of bronze has - so it is estimated - began 2500-2000 BC in Southwest Asia. Even today in the age of bits and bytes Bronze takes an outstanding position among the materials.
 Antique Bronze Art Due to the high quality standards you are in the family's foundry still prefer the traditional lost wax method, where individual series are produced entirely in sand casting and centrifugal casting.
 Antique Bronze Art

From the original model of a sculpture or a relief a flexible negative mold is created. Depending on the production method it requires a repeated casting of the model until the copy is finished. The negative mold is destroyed during casting. Therefore, for each model there must be made another copy of a new form. The creation of a high quality Art casting object is complex and requires a high level of experience and skills of the cast Master.

Within the art of casting, bronze casting holds a very special status. The method - developed during the Bronze Age - are still used today. Over the millennia, the technology has only been refined and extended. Despite mechanical assistance bronzes are also almost exclusively pure Hand made​​.
