Georg Ferdinand Howaldt (8 April 1802 – 19 January 1883) was a German sculptor.
Howaldt was born in Braunschweig as the son of the silversmith David Ferdinand Howaldt. he learned silversmithing and went to Nuremberg, where he became friends with the sculptor Jacob Daniel Burgschmiet, who convinced him to change to modelling and sculpture. He became a teacher in modelling there and continued teaching modelling when he returned to Braunschweig in 1836. The success out of his cooperation with the famous sculptor Ernst Rietschel allowed him to start his own foundry casting sculptures for many known German sculptors of the nineteenth century. Since 1863 he was professor at the Collegium Carolinum zu Braunschweig, today TU Braunschweig. Howaldt died in Braunschweig. His son Hermann Heinrich Howaldt, also a sculptor, had joined him and continued his work and the foundry under Howaldt & Sohn until his own death.
