History and techniques of metal sculpture

Metal is a sculpting medium, much like wood, marble, plaster, or resin. However, different metals have unique properties and historical/artistic value.
  • Gold is a noble metal primarily used for small royal objects, aristocracy, or religious purposes.
  • Copper was used in ancient times to create decorative objects and a few sculptures.
  • Bronze became prevalent during the Renaissance et Classical periods, often representing royal or religious power.
  • Industrial metals, emerging with industrial and technological advancements, such as iron, steel, aluminum, and tin, are commonly used today to create metal artworks.
