Sleek and modern, stainless steel sculptures add impact to any building, office or home decor. A stainless steel sculpture should cause the admirer to contemplate the elegance of design and shape, as well as inspire conversation.
British metallurgist Harry Brearley is credited with inventing stainless steel in 1913, which he discovered by adding chromium to molten iron. The fact that this steel alloy could withstand corrosion and discoloration made it useful for a variety of applications in numerous industries. The properties that made stainless steel so attractive to industry is also what gave inspiration to artists to use this material in outside sculptures. The durability and reflective nature of stainless steel sculptures led to an an increase of artists erecting these outside sculptures in the 1970s.
Artists whose stainless steel sculptures and methods for producing them have had influence in furthering this field include:
Sculptura is delighted to offer the eclectic works of prestigious and award-winning sculptor Christian Maas. His stainless steel sculptures come in a range of sizes.
