My home is my castle, isn´t it… About my house sculptures

My home is my castle.

This says a lot about what our home, our house is standing for.

House, for most of us this is a synonym for security, for feeling safe and protected. The place where we can feel relaxed and at ease.

So what happens if this feelings are put into question? What when the very foundations of our homes are at risk, like in my little hommage to Goethe “My peace has gone”?

Wolfgang Sandt, Garden of Poetry

My home is my castle. But what happens if my home´s very foundations are shattered?


What happens when the house of our soul has no entrance or exit, only a small window allowing us to have only a limited view of the world outside, like in “The house of the soul (for Guido Pompilj) ” ?


About the things that inspire my art work

I am asked fairly often what inspires me to create my sculptures.

Wolfgang Sandt, sculptor, My desire is to transform the seemingly solid material stone in something ethereal

My desire is to transform the seemingly solid material stone (here you see the detail of a marble sculpture) in something ethereal


A question most probably every artist is familiar with.

Well, when it comes to my translucent sculptures the answer is easy. I am inspired by the sky, the clouds, by water in all its shapes, as well as by fire.

I am fascinated by the movement, the permanent change, the things that escape your grip.

I realise, that in some way it may seem a parodox trying to capture all this rigidly in solid stone..

My intention however is contrary. I don´t want to press the sky or the water into a rigid form.

Rather I desire to transform the seemingly solid substance stone into something moving, changing, ethereal…

Of course I know this is not really possible, but I try to come as near as possible to the “unreachable star”.
