Stefan Dakon ~(Austrian, 1904 ~ 1992) Dakon worked in close association with Josef Lorenzl, producing many exciting bronze figurine sculptures of the Art Deco period. Dakon’s models were used among others by members of the association of bronze producers “Wiener Bronzen” (“Vienna Bronze”), as well as by the famous ceramics manufacturer Goldscheider from Vienna. Typical and at the same time characteristic of the Art Deco era, was the depiction of the concept of modern life – in particular, that of the “modern woman” in rhythmic, sensual and aerodynamic poses taken from the new forms of dance, for which there was a lot of enthusiasm at that time.
After attending a school of sculpture and training at the art foundry in Vienna, Dakon worked at the Vienna factory of Friedrich Goldscheider from 1924, for which he produced numerous designs. Up to the mid-1950s he became one of the most important and creative designers of this company. His favourite subjects were dancers, actresses, masks and children studies. Dakon also produced designs for the Vienna ceramics company Keramos as well as for Goebel/Oeslau and Hertwig/Katzhütte. Today, works of Dakon form part of numerous private collections and a number of his works may be viewed in the Vienna Museum.
