Steve learned to drive on a Ford tractor, before building his own car in his teens. That first car was a 1933 Plymouth with a Corvette V8 engine – loud, fast, overheated, wouldn’t stop.. – a hot rod!!
Good training for a mechanically minded artist!
Prior to his focus on fine art sculpture, Posson studied automobile design at Art Center College of Design in Southern California. He designed prototype bodywork for Jeep, Volvo and Renault, as well as motorcycle designs for Kawasaki, Yamaha and BMW. He currently works as a modeler in new car studios currently with automotive Design studios, in Germany.
Liselotte Bjorck-Posson, Steve’s partner in business, understands the process and manages much of the production related to Steve’s sculptures. Working in tandem with him, sculpting the figures and helping with chasing of waxes and coordinating with vendors.
Liselotte’s particular expertise is in the graphic arts. Much of the photography seen in this site was art directed by Lise. Graphics for Posson Sculpture implemented by www.bonafidegraphicdesign.com
Expect delivery from 3 to 6 months on typical orders after ordering.
Unique first time commissions can take longer, when making the master and casting the first bronzes is always partly a discovery process, each artwork has it’s own needs.
Steve is often says:
The Bronze Sculpture you see is the last act of the production, but there is a whole play in there!!
This Californian combines his training in design, passion and the ancient technique of lost wax casting to create limited edition bronze sculpture. Lost wax, also called “investment” casting, is thousands of years old.
This process can capture details down to a fingerprint, and the metal is unequaled in the palette of surfaces and finishes available to the artist.
Steve is savy with many mediums. Creating his masters from wood, renshape, various metals and clay, his understanding of many materials has created a natural path in offering sculptures, in other materials as well. Posson Sculpture works closely hand in hand with Bonafide Design, creating and producing all types of awards and gift solutions for exciting events and venues.
