Material and creation
The ingredients have a primary importance for us.
Wood - Best-quality regional wood
Wood is one of the most beautiful, most precious and most elegant raw materials, thanks to its natural colour and its continuous change. Wood is cherished in many quarters because of the characteristic grain, which lends that certain something to a wooden statue. Wood lives and breathes, it changes with time – in the positive sense. Wood is cherished throughout the world, many works have been built and created with it – it is lauded by the following adjectives: warm, natural, beautiful and elegant, cosy and comfortable, healthy and clean, animate. Celebrate your statue made of wood! Ferdinand Stuflesser 1875's wood is carefully selected and first-class. Before being processed, the wood is dried naturally. In these art workshops, renowned woods such as stone pine (from the pine family) and linden wood are used as softwoods and oak wood, nut wood, chestnut and mahogany woods as hardwoods.
Bronze - A noble and long-lasting metal
Bronze is a beautiful and festive raw material, imposing but motionless. Bronze is a light-sensitive material, thus creating space in this way via the play of reflection of the light. It is the collective term for alloys of copper with zinc, tin and other lesser components. Many significant examples of beautiful bronze statues can be found in Rome. Bronze is cherished, as some alloys have the unusual and very useful characteristic of expanding slightly before hardening and thus filling every single cavity in the casting mold. In finished works, this allows every single detail of the artist to be seen.
If you’re looking for a bronze statue, you’ve come to the right place!
Marble - A natural living form
Marble is a very hard, resistant and also mystical raw material from which imposing and magnificent works can be created. It is a natural stone that has emerged from an extraordinary phenomenon, the so-called metamorphosis. High temperatures and high pressure in the interior of the earth formed limestone into the noble and highly cherished marble. Every piece of marble is unique in colour and change, thus also allowing the creation of unique works of art. Ferdinand Stuflesser 1875 uses various types of marble to realize its works: some of them are white marble from Carrara, Botticino and Laas marble from the beautiful area of South Tyrol.
