Bases and columns – give your work a foundation.
What is the best way to set up my sculpture? This is not only a technical question, but also a design one: how do I want to present my work? Do I need a gallery pedestal, a wooden column or a metal plate as a base? Which material suits my work? How big should a plinth, column, pedestal or footplate be?
The pedestal as a support for sculpture has undergone a major change of meaning in the history of modern art – but it is still a classic for the presentation of objects, sculptures and sculptures in galleries and exhibitions, in gardens and parks, indoors and outdoors.
