Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture "David"

Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture “David”

Statue.com’s Gloria and Ann had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of a special sculpture. It is quite unusual to see this type of sculpture done within the United States, much less in the Midwest. The sculptor’s material of choice was bonded marble, more commonly used in Italy.

The building material is not the only special attribute of the sculpture. The statue unveiled was crafted by Steve Otten. His ambition was inspired by famous sculptor Michelangelo and his rendition of David during a trip to Italy. This trip came at a special point in Otten’s life as he was suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome from his career as a Navy SEAL. After his trip, Otten focused his energy upon studying and training at local community colleges and an art studio. Working on his sculpture has helped him cope with his experience of war and provided an outlet for a passion and determination.

The beauty of art is that it can transcend just aesthetics and take on an element of healing and hope. We believe Steve Otten has proven just that.

The Statue.com Gallery has a wide range of casting materials to fit any decor need. Sometimes those choices can be a bit overwhelming. What is the difference between cast-stone or designer-resin? How about Tuffstone or Durastone? What materials work well for outside compared to materials that will reside indoors? We will help you step by step to understanding the different materials and choose the perfect one for your needs.

Bonded Carrara Marble

The Northern Italian quarry of Carrara is noted for the white marble produced. The marble resin compound is created by crushing small pieces of Carrara marble that are not otherwise usable. The resin gives the marble powder an added strength superior to the natural stone. The statues consist of approximately 70% – 80% marble powder and the remainder being resin. Bonded marble compares favorably to its natural marble counterpart. The surface texture is nearly identical. The coloring of bonded marble is a consistent white whereas the natural Carrara marble is slightly off white with subtle gray streaking in some cases. It weighs approximately 90% of the weight of natural marble but is superior in strength.

Does the famous Renaissance artist Michelangelo Buonarroti ring a bell? Michelangelo used Carrara marble as his preferred sculpting material, including The Pieta and The David.

The care of Bonded Carrara Marble is fairly simple and usually just requires a simple dusting from time to time. It is significantly less porous than pure marble.

Designer-Resin

These sculptures are created by casting products of fiberglass resin, (a very durable synthetic polymer), in well-made molds. One of the most suitable casting materials for outdoor/indoor use. These pieces weather well in rain but when the temperatures dip below freezing it is best to bring them indoors.

Designer Resin is also significantly lighter than it’s cousin cast stone, thus reducing shipping costs. The finish of these pieces are easily customized.
