Artificial Marble

Artificial marble is one of the materials that are very well suited for casting. For this purpose, marble powder is bound with a polymer. The hardened mass is characterised by a fine white surface that is very similar to real marble. Due to its colour and texture, artificial marble is an excellent material for reproducing sculptures with great attention to detail. This is why many museum replicas are made of artificial marble, for example works by Auguste Rodin or Johann Gottfried Schadow, as well as Roman and Greek statues from antiquity. However, contemporary artists such as SIME, Roman Johann Strobl or Thomas Hoffmann also use artificial marble for their filigree sculptures. Compared to a solid marble sculpture, works made of artificial marble are considerably cheaper and lighter but are in no way inferior in appearance.
