Eagle Sculpture Above the Clouds, Small
Eagle Sculpture Above the Clouds, Smallby Mark Hopkins(1)
$1,000
Renowned wildlife sculpture artist Eli Hopkins has created this smaller version of the original "Above The Clouds" Eagle Sculpture. This contemporary image of the majestic bird of prey in flight is created in classic bronze, and finished using a unique hot patina to mix lifelike colors with subtle and timeless hues from the metal itself. This sculpture pays awe-inspiring tribute to the American icon, a symbol of strength and freedom. Only 200 pieces will be produced in this maquette patriotic vision, making it a very special gift for your favorite American nature lover. It is also available in a larger version, shown below. Internationally renowned American artist Mark Hopkins creates bronze sculptures that have thrilled collectors and casual art fans alike for more than two decades. Mark Hopkins' unique balance of organic inspiration and singular contemporary design has been called "bronze in motion" for its fluid look, which often appears to display natural beauty in defiance of gravity. About Mark Hopkins Mark Hopkins takes his inspiration for every facet of life on Earth, from the majesty of wildlife to mankind's interaction with nature, and produces limited-edition pieces that evoke a sense of awe and respect for the mysteries and loveliness of the world around us. Collectors of his work include Barbara Mandrell, Clint Eastwood, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, George and Barbara Bush and a host of other luminaries and corporations including the National League Association of Baseball Club Owners, the Atlanta National Golf Club, Humana, Coca-Cola and others. Each Mark Hopkins sculpture is crafted with pride in the USA. Captivated by form and design, Mark has personally created a signature style of vibrant vitality resulting from decades of study. Encouraged by parents and teachers from an early age, Mark's unique talent developed alongside his technical skills of sculpting and casting. As an artist, Mark is constantly challenging himself to render the rich beauty of life and the deep emotion of the human soul into flowing sculptural form, noting "I strive to express beyond the image, to catch spirit, to reveal deeper emotions, and to share joy. " About the Production Process From the artist's hand to the final polishing stages, many intricate steps go into the creation of a limited edition bronze sculpture. First the reproduction mold is made in which layers of silicone rubber and plaster are delicately applied to the original work. Then hot wax is poured into the reproduction mold to form an exact replica of the original sculpture. When the wax replica is removed from the mold, it is then inspected and refined or "chased" by hand to remove any imperfections that may have occurred in the reproduction process. Next, ceramic cup and wax sprues, or gates, are added which later will help channel the molten bronze into the shell to create the sculpture. The next step is creating the ceramic shell by alternately dipping the wax replica over a period of several days into a vat of liquid slurry, then a vat of silica crystals. The shell is then set to dry, and the process repeats until the shell has reached the appropriate thickness and strength. The finished shell is placed in a high temperature oven that melts and removes the wax (the traditional "lost wax" method). The hardened or "fired" shell is secured, so the molten bronze can now be poured into the wax impression.Read More

Everyone enjoys adding a touch of color and beauty to their home with artwork, and sculptures combine rich color with touchable 3D surfaces and textures. If you’re just starting to dive into the wide world of sculptures, it may be overwhelming to decide which pieces to bring home for your collection. Will that wood sculpture look stunning perched atop your mantel? Or would a pair of matching wall sculptures complement a narrow hallway better? Here are a few tips to help you choose a gorgeous, long-lasting work of 3D art for your home:

What should I consider before purchasing a new metal, wood, ceramic or wire sculpture?


Naturally you’ll want your sculptures to be around for at least a few years, so it’s important to choose a piece that exhibits a high level of quality. Also, keep in mind what size will fit into your home décor. While a large wood sculpture may look spectacular in the shop, it may prove overwhelming and cumbersome when added to your living space. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a statement-making piece, you may want to choose that medium-size bronze sculpture instead of a smaller wire sculpture. The great thing about sculptures is they come in a great variety of sizes, so you’re sure to find one that will complement your current décor perfectly.

Size aside, don’t forget to consider what style you’ll prefer. You’ll find plenty of modern sculpture, abstract sculpture and other styles to choose from, so don’t feel as if you’re limited to only one genre of art. It’s best to pick sculptures that will fit in with your décor even as it changes over the years so you can continue to display your ceramic or metal sculpture for years to come.

What’s the difference between the different materials used for sculptures?


One major decision you’ll quickly be confronted with is the type of material used to create sculptures. While there are differences in how each material is shaped into the final artwork, your choice mainly comes down to aesthetics. Even so, here’s a short explanation of some of the major differences between each material:
• Bronze: A bronze sculpture is molded and shaped to create angles and form. They range in size from sculptures that can sit on your shelf to larger pieces that strike a pose on the floor and tend to be fairly durable.
• Glass: Heat is used to form glass into different shapes that range in color from clear to every hue of the rainbow. These tend to be more fragile and should be displayed in an area out of reach of children and pets.
• Metal: A metal sculpture is created by sheets of metal that are shaped with heat and tools. They’re one of the most durable material options and come in a wide range of sizes.
• Ceramic: One of the most common materials, ceramic is formed and then fired after a colored or clear glaze is applied. They tend to be fragile and, just like glass pieces, should be displayed in a location where children and pets can’t reach them.
• Wire: Wire sculptures feature metal wire that has been heated to form different shapes and textures. They’re also durable and come in a range of sizes and styles.
