The fireplace is the centerpiece of every room. With furniture gathered around a hearth. and usually located somewhere as to provide heat to the room, the fireplace is an area where people gather and relax. It is a space where you will spend lots of time and it is where you will do everything from nap alone to entertain large groups.
What Sculpture Can Bring to Your Space
Sculpture on the fireplace mantel can add a certain uniqueness that will only come with three dimensional works of art. Where two dimensional works are great when there is limited space if the mantel is small, there is also the option to bring in wall sculptures hanging above the hearth.
For sculptures that sit on the mantelpiece, there can be both vertical and horizontal branching that serves as an extension of the fire roaring in the fireplace. Emulating the same outgrowing nature of a fire, these pieces serve to open up and reach out in all directions of the room, which in turn pulls the eye in and makes them wonderful focal points for the room.
