I am seeking recommendations for an experienced foundry/fabricator who is capable of taking on a complex and custom job.
We are working on a monument project with over 200 bronze elements, each approx. 15ft high x 4 inches square, and tapered at the top. The finish is proposed to be a raw quenched free pour and mirror polish. Each element is designed to have a light effect at its apex. Some are proposed to have engraved quotes as a surface treatment.
The artist’s quote for the bronze elements, from a foundry in China, has almost doubled in cost since the concept design was approved in 2016. I am hoping to provide some alternative sources for them to do the project.
All leads appreciated!!
