Barry Stein

Inspired by an intense love of nature. A self-taught Oregon, artist Barry Stein spends hours in the wild researching the wildlife and their surroundings that come to life in his world-renown bronze sculptures. Currently, Barry’s work can be found in prestigious collections throughout the world, and are presently on display in The Waldorf Astoria Hotel New York City, The New York Hilton Hotel, New York Essex House, Hyatt Regency, The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, the Hilton Hotel in Honolulu, and galleries in many states throughout the U.S. as well as galleries in England, France and Germany. Barry’s wildlife sculptures have been presented as gifts by our government’s executive branch to foreign heads of state.

Rather than start his process in clay, as most bronze artists do, Barry’s sculpture process begins by creating his wildlife art in wood. The relative softness of clay or wax allows for corrections, which can make the process much easier. But wood, the more difficult medium, offers the artist the option of more detail.

Once a carving is completed, the process of converting the figure into bronze begins: the making of an initial mold, then the wax casting which creates the shape of the final mold into which the molten bronze is poured, followed by the actual casting of the sculpture. Painstaking cleaning and polishing are followed by the application of the patinas that give the figure it’s final beautiful coloring.
