How Bronze Matters in People’s Lives in these Modern Times

By Lawrence Halter Subscribe to RSS | May 23rd 2012 | Views:

Do you wonder if bronze still has a place in this world, given the times we now live in? Many objects, particularly the larger ones, use tougher, sturdier metals like steel, while some smaller objects previously made of metal use strong yet synthetic forms of plastic. In spite of bronze’s long history with humanity, is this alloy still relevant today?

Of course, no one can deny how much an impact bronze has made in people’s lives through the centuries. The discovery of this alloy enabled many things previously thought impossible to turn into reality, like tools, weapons, and even building materials. It paved the way for the so-called Bronze Age, that period highlighted by the heavy use of bronze and copper in various civilizations around the world. It saw the creation of hammers for building, armor for defense, and even coins for money, up until other metals like iron were discovered soon after.

Even with other stronger and more seemingly practical materials, bronze is actually still used today. Perhaps not as often as then, but it has its place. If you’re curious to know more, then simply read and discover how bronze matters in people’s lives even in these times of modern technology.

Since then, you have gold for the winner, silver for the first runner-up or second place, then bronze for the second runner-up or third place. While people still give the highest praise to those who win gold, winning a bronze can still be a sign of personal achievement, having beaten other competitors.


Some musical instruments are made of bronze or another alloy, brass. Bronze bars are often made into cymbals because they have the desired balance of tone color and durability. Bronze is also utilized as windings of steel springs for certain stringed instruments like the double bass, piano, and the ubiquitous guitar.


Art essentially makes the most use of bronze. You’re bound to find many statues made from a bronze bar or so, especially those from earlier eras. Even in modern times, bronze remains a material of choice for making statues or monuments.

Despite the times, bronze bars are still in demand as springs, turbines, and blades. Until such time when more economic, more impervious materials are found, bronze is sure to stay for a few years or even centuries You can read more about bronze on and
