Artificial Marble

Marble is one of the classic materials used in sculpture, but it is equally costly and heavy in weight as a material. Artificial marble offers a modern alternative: Artificial marble sculptures are visually comparable to those made from real marble, yet due to their reduced weight, they are easier for collectors to handle.

Marble Sculptures - A New Material in Artistic Tradition

Pentelic marble, Carrara marble or Parian marble - from these world-famous types of stone, great artists such as Michelangelo Buonarroti, Bernini or Auguste Rodin created breath-taking sculptures, the fascination of which remains unbroken even today, hundreds of years later. The mere thought of the painstaking work that went into creating the outlines and detailed intricacies of the marble sculptures from stone continues to astonish art lovers around the globe.

Even before the beginning of our era, more than 2,000 years ago, sculptures were made of marble. In particular, the Greek and Roman marble sculptures, which can be admired today, for example, in the Louvre or the Uffizi, continue to captivate. Yet, the works created later during the Renaissance, Baroque, and Neo-Classicism also manage to draw viewers in from the very first moment. Sculptures made of genuine marble are still being created today. However, they are almost unaffordable for private collectors. In addition, logistical challenges often arise due to the enormous weight. This is why artificial marble sculptures are becoming an increasingly popular alternative.

Artificial Marble Sculptures - Versatile and Sophisticated

Artificial marble is an artificially produced material made of marble powder and plastic. When hardened, the material forms a smooth surface with a white colouration. As a result, artificial marble closely resembles genuine marble. Due to the materials used, artificial marble is also very resistant and resilient. The artificial stone can be worked and shaped in various ways, transforming it into versatile artificial marble sculptures. The material is particularly often used for art castings. This allows artificial marble sculptures to be cast as replicas of real marble sculptures, which are indistinguishable from the ton-heavy originals but prove to be significantly lighter.
