CASTED ART

Sculptures made of various metals have been exceptional pieces of the world’s art since centuries. The lost wax precision investment casting is remarkably precise technology which allows casting of the most complicated and niggling shapes. In exceptional cases MAGYARMET makes use of this advantage to take special orders for steel and bronze sculptures.

Tony Cragg

During the last couple of years we have made several sculptures for the famous British artist, Tony Cragg. Turner Prize-winning sculptor Tony Cragg emerged in the late 1970s with a bold practice that questioned and tested the limits of a wide variety of traditional sculptural materials, including bronze, steel, glass, wood, and stone. “I’m an absolute materialist, and for me material is exciting and ultimately sublime,” he has said.

Tony Cragg is one of the world’s foremost sculptors. Constantly pushing to find new relations between people and the material world, there is no limit to the materials he might use, as there are no limits to the ideas or forms he might conceive.He started working with various metal materials in the 1980’s. In his words his sculptures are „responses for the artificially world”, and they unite nature and civilization in themselves.

“I want that material to have a dynamic, to push and move and grow”

Tony Cragg

Through successfully completed orders for Tony Cragg Magyarmet received requests and orders from other artists. We have worked for such famous and acknowledged artists as the Norwegian-Danish artist duo, Elmgreen & Dragset, David Zink-Yi, Bernd Heinrich or the Hungarian sculptor, Attila Mata.
