Hi Rebecca,

I concur w/Elise on Artworks Foundry. They are very capable. In addition to a number of major works in our collection, they have national reach and their works include the large figures around the Disney HQ in Burbank and the very large, iconic bust of legendary jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker in St. Louis MO. Great people to work with. Licensed contractor.

CAUTION: This email originated from outside of the organization. Be cautious of opening attachments and clicking on links.

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!!


Thank you!
