Sculpture will always be the will to shape matter in three dimensions.
Tradition, for us, means respecting the old masters. From ancient Greece and Rome to renaissance Florence, neo-classicist Prussia and baroque Saxony. We owe a debt to their skills and their heritage, for their work fills us with deep respect.
Breathing life into matter: Stone, bronze, terracotta, stucco…
… any natural substance – except for wood – that can be shaped by human hands. We work from historical models or according to our clients' designs. The quality of our work is determined not by the size of the commission or the price which the client is prepared to pay, but solely by our desire to create works which will transcend time or convey a sense of timelessness. Never before have people felt as great a need for palpable history and sensory experience in their immediate surroundings as they do today.
In this sense, we see our work as part of a greater social and historical whole: We want to leave something more to future generations than concrete and anonymous functionality.
We work by hand only. In our team, the use of mallet and punch or of wooden modelling tools for clay and plaster work is not a forgotten skill, but a deliberate policy. We create individual pieces, custom-crafted according to the specifications of our clients, whoever they may be. Whether we are working for foundations, patrons, private individuals or people involved in the preservation of monuments, we take every commission equally seriously and complete it with the same meticulous care.
Our philosophy is to create objects and ensembles that transcend the short-lived nature of our time. This applies to copies as well as originals. We create tomorrow's history in our work – in the art of stone sculpting and stone restoration.
