Indoor / Outdoor Sculpture Bases

I offer three styles of bases.  The most common is a square or round plate.  For added height I offer base #2.  For pieces that will be mounted into concrete or sunk into the ground there is base #3.  Each base can be built to your size specifications. 


Standard Sculpture Base #1

This is the most commonly used base and comes standard with most of my sculptures.  It is welded to the sculpture and is usually coated in a textured black paint.  For indoor applications I add felt to the bottom to prevent scratching.  Examples of the normal square base and round base are shown.  If necessary, holes can be put into the base plate for securing it to a surface with bolts or screws.  


The piece below shows a sculpture with a round version of this base.


Optional Sculpture Base #2

For additional height, I use a stand like this.  It is extremely sturdy, using thick steel tube and plate.  Normally these stands are anywhere from 18 inches tall up to about 36 inches tall.  For indoor applications I add felt to the bottom plate to prevent scratching.  For outdoor applications I usually add holes in the base plate to the stand can be secured to the ground or to a deck.  

Notice the bolt at the top of the stand.  The sculpture bolts to the stand.  This makes shipping and installation much easier.  Scroll down for more photos of this junction.

Optional Sculpture Base #3

This is another option for a stand.  It is the same as Base #2 but without the bottom plate.  This stand is normally sunk into concrete.  As with Base #2, the sculpture is secured to the base with the four supplied stainless bolts.  Normally this type of base is sunk into the ground at least 12 inches and extend out of the ground anywhere from a few inches up to about 36 inches depending on the application.    

This type of base works great outdoors for adding height to the sculptures.  I have customers who have used this type of base to install their sculptures in their gardens.  The stand lifts the sculpture above the surrounding shrubbery.  



Custom Pedestal Base 

This is an example of a custom built pedestal base.  These work great to add additional height to an existing sculpture or for displaying other items that you may have.  The design can be changed as well as the height and width.  They are extremely sturdy and overly built.

Sculpture Base Connection

The photos below show a sculpture being mounted to my Base #2 or Base #3 design.  The four stainless steel bolts are included.  I put blue dots on both pieces for easy alignment.  The dots just peel off after assembly.  





These are the base designs that I am currently building for my indoor / outdoor sculptures shown in the link below:
