Wolfgang Sandt, German artist with a love for Italy, works mainly with stone but also with wood and several other materials, integrating also objéts trouvées in his sculptures. His works are as well representational as non-figurative. For many years he has been occupying himself with the theme of `fragility`, questioning the importance of seemingly unchanging values and realities. One result of this research are his `fragile stelae`, long, slender, elegant and always on the rim of breaking : `The artist always has to go to the extremes.` Wolf...
Sculpture: 'Fragile Stele IV (Vertical stone abstract Minimalist garden sculpture)' by Wolfgang Sandt
Stone Stele Abstract Garden Tall Thin sculptures or Stone Yard Post Modern Commission statues made from black Norit a magmatic stone created from the lava of a volcano millions of years ago for sale or Commission. Norit is extremely hard. Every attempt to carve it is a real challenge for the sculptor. Fragile Stele IV can be seen as a geometrical, architectural sculpture but resembles as well the archaic Moais from the Easter Island.
For many years I have been occupying myself with the theme of transition, change, vulnerability, fragility, questioning the importance of seemingly unchanging values and realities. One result of this research are my fragile stelae, always taking a little bigger risk while going to the extremes.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful." Sir Roy Strong
The sculptures arrived in the meantime and on weekend I brought them home to my private house/garden. They arrived in a perfect condition and when I have opened them I was speechless – Shaun, they look great. I got the picture from you where I could see them before but in reality they look much more better !!! JJJ I am really happy – thank you so much that you made them for me. They will get a perfect place in my garden – I will send you pictures than ! Once again m... [Read more]
