Created by artist Guenter Scholz, each sculpture has been individually handcrafted by cutting, bending and welding recycled steel to effectively portray the subject. Guenter Scholz first demonstrated his aptitude for his craft as a mechanical engineering student. Building upon a 1930's art form, he's combined his technical background with a love of art to create unique and original sculptures. Made of recycled steel with copper trim, Scholz's art is easily identified by the signature "washer" eyeglasses his subjects wear. Scholz's unique sculptures allow you to personalize your home and office decor. His whimsical renderings of Sports, Professions, Musicians, Lifestyles and modes of Travel capture the unique essence of his subjects and add warmth and individuality to their surroundings. In addition to the sculptures are Wine Bottle Holders and recently released Stompers.
The collections are only limited by imagination, which is why new creations are forever bringing a smile to someone's face. These original sculptures that are hand made in Germany were first brought to the United States in 1997. Since their introduction, the collection has been carefully redesigned to reflect the American lifestyle and sense of humor.
The wine bottle caddies were first introduced in the U.S. in 2000 and have grown from 2 designs to over 100 unique styles, with several more on the drawing board. The H&K design team has created a truly unique collection. Existing designs are constantly being improved, while new ideas are being developed.
H&K steel sculptures provide a very personal gift. Also because of the creative and handcrafting facilities in Europe they encourage custom designs for corporate premium and charity events.
The moment you hold an H&K Steel Sculpture, you'll feel the weight and solidity, see the craftsmanship and appreciate its' quality and value.
