Sculpture generally involves the creation of a three-dimensional work by an artist who carves, cuts, models, or assembles various materials. Among the latter, we find metal in various forms and compositions.
A good number of creations made from metal pieces employ the art of assemblage. Several pieces are stuck together or arranged in a particular way on a support.
As testified by the many monuments and statues which populate cities, it's equally possible to make metal sculptures by melting metal, then pouring it into a mould. Furthermore, some artists have developed techniques to work it, in particular covering a sculpture with thin sheets of metal, or welding several forged pieces together.Add to my favorites
