5 Common Materials for Sculptures

Stainless Steel
Sculptures made from stainless steel are durable due to their hardness and corrosion resistance. This also means the sculpture will be quite heavy and sturdy when comparing to other materials. The stainless steel sculptures can be more costly due to its superiority. Our stainless steel sculptures are marine grade, meaning they withstand corrosion even in saltwater.

Bronze
The bronze material has been used in the creation of sculptures for centuries. Bronze is made by melting both copper and tin together they are mixed and make it less brittle – the perfect combination to create bronze sculptures. View bronze sculptures here.

Wood
Wood carvers sculpt the wood using knives or chisels to create a statue or even small figurines; the downside is in comparison to materials such as bronze and stone is that it doesn’t last as long in an outdoor environment as it is more vulnerable to damage from decay or fire.

Marble
A metamorphic rock derived from limestone, which is easy for a sculptor to work with. As marble ages, it becomes more durable and stays harder which gives it a long lasting effect. The harder marble is an advantage as it makes it weather-resistant so you can use your sculpture outdoors. View marble sculptures here.

Corten Steel
This weather resistant steel makes it a perfect candidate for outdoor sculptures. When corten steel is exposed to the atmosphere, without painting, corten will begin to rust in the same way as ordinary steel. However, soon the alloying elements in corten will cause a protective surface layer of fine-textured rust to form, thus suppressing the corrosion rate. View corten steel sculptures here.
