The Swiss iron sculptor processes steel into genuine original sculptures. His work consists exclusively of unique pieces. No cast iron, no copies. All sculptures are signed and since 1998 listed in the SIC (sculpture identifier code), the official catalogue of works. Thus, unique sculptures have been created for many years. His work is dominated by the standing female figure.

The sculptures are hand-made with a welding torch at more than 1500° C from previously liquefied steel. Insights into his studio show the creation of the iron sculptures.


David Werthmüller * 1969, was born and educated in Bern. He has been working in his own studio since 1998. His artistic career is described in this essay and in the reviews. The self-employed iron sculptor was previously a docent for fig. drawing. He is married and has two adult daughters. One is also an iron sculptor. See Jane Steel. The Swiss artist lives and works in Fräschels in the canton of Fribourg in Switzerland. The painter Stefan Werthmüller from Thun is his brother.


The iron sculptor has written a small photo book with texts. 13 pages with 22 photos. Handsigned, each with an individual, genuine original sketch in the cover. Inspiring and informative.
