Indoor & Outdoor Metal Sculptures


Custom Metal Sculpture Metal sculptures take many forms. Throughout history various materials have been used to create metal art sculptures: bronze, copper, silver, gold and steel, just to name a few. In recent years, many metal sculptors have opted to use alloys such as aluminum to create their figures and monuments because the material is lightweight, attractive, durable, resistant to rust/corrosion/patina, etc. High-quality aluminum can be used for outdoor metal sculptures in direct sunlight or just about any weather conditions, and it will maintain its' appearance and integrity.

Although Nicholas does love the inherent properties, appearance and pliability of aluminum for his metallic sculptures, he is fond of stainless steel as well and can create any of his designs in steel rather than aluminum if you have a particular reason to prefer one metal over the other.

A weightless, flowing design stretching from a mounted metal base up towards the sky, Gaffico appears to be captured as though it were a photograph of a rippling ribbon in the wind.

As the name suggests, the two primary metal structures depict the concept of a pair of individuals wrapped up together. This sculpture is mounted on a sturdy base and ready for indoor or outdoor placement.

The narrow metal body curved, curled, formed and bent purely by the strength of Nicholas's hands and fingers, and the energy of this physical exertion seems to be captured in the organic, lifelike interpretation of the body of the sculpture. The attractive design creates a unique viewing experience from every angle, giving this piece a life of its own as it perches in artistic animallike glory...

Not that it has any more aesthetic value, but simply that it has an almost animalistic appearance to it. The beautiful, organic shape of the body might be interpreted as a ducked head with raised snout, arched back, and curling tail. This piece might be the perfect abstract, minimalist silver sculpture for the contemporary animal lover looking for a striking display with a subtle nod at the...

By default they will have either a stone or a metal base, which may or may not be the exact base you see in the original product photography. Nicholas Yust's standard base sizes are 8"x8" for sculptures up to 36" tall, and 12"x12" for sculptures larger than 36" tall.

                                                                                                  Some metalworkers will use molds or casts to create their sculptures, while others might hammer their designs. Some artists use wrought iron for a more traditional-style art (or even garden/yard art,) while others use sheet metal for more decorative sculpting. Welding, hammering, bending, drilling and bolting are common practice among just about all metal sculpture techniques.

                                                                                                  Nicholas Yust, as a more modern/abstract/contemporary style artist uses sheet metal to create his metallic sculptures. He applies decorative grind patterns and (for colored designs) semi-transparent paints to turn ordinary metal into extraordinary sculptures. He will then cut, trim, bend and weld the metal strips to the desired artistic shape/design, and then mount them to a carefully-selected, sturdy base to complete the work. All of our metal sculptures for sale here will ship direct from Nicholas Yust's personal studio in Cincinnati, and will be entirely hand-crafted by the artist himself.
