Wiebke Bader is a freelance artist and sculptor. She lives and works in Aalen, Baden-Württemberg. Her preferred materials are bronze and wood.

In her search for the poetic and essential, Wiebke Bader finds inspiration in nature. The organic forms and flowing lines of her mostly abstract sculptures complement each other to create an exciting harmony. Her works are also characterized by great variability: not only do they offer new views from all sides, they can often also be set up in different positions.

Creation of the sculptures

Individual sculptures and groups of sculptures can be created in almost any size and suitable for any international location. The models are made of plaster, wax or clay. After that, sculptures made of bronze or resin are realized in small editions, as well as unique pieces made of wood or ceramics.

On the page News the contribution Bronze sculpture Two Points exemplifies how a sculpture is created.

Vision

Wiebke Bader creates sculptures that are also models for larger works. Larger than life, they could stand in public spaces or set a highlight in spacious gardens.

Examples are the works Bow II and Dance sketched in front of buildings in Aalen.
