Renate Burgyan Fackler
With more than 20 years of experience in both clay and wax sculpture, Renate Fackler learned by doing. A graduate from the OSU School of Journalism, Renate turned her interest to sculpture following a life threatening illness at the age of 30. She has studied at The Columbus Cultural Art Center, Columbus College of Art and Design, Johnson's Atelier, Columbia University and also with nationally known patina expert, Ron Young. Her work has been influenced by travel throughout Europe and Asia, as well as by sculptors such as Rodin, Michelangelo, and Degas.
Using the ancient lost wax method of bronze casting, Renate has personally participated in all phases of the bronze casting process, including the bronze pour, patination and outdoor installation. Her work is found in public and private collections across the United States. She has completed numerous commissions for clients such as Wendy's International, Charity Newsies, and the Herb Society of America. Her work is part of the permanent collection of Women in the Arts in America in Washington D.C. as well as the White House. Featured sculptures are published in The Well Designed Mixed Garden, by Tracy Disabato-Aust. A permanent installation can be found locally at Inniswood Gardens in Westerville, Ohio.
