Sean M. Monaghan of Bronze Works here in Santa Cruz comes to mind. He does fine art but also makes all sorts of wild things he takes to Burning Man. J

You could get in touch with Benjamin Victor who says he can give you a foundry that’d work great for this if you want to call him.

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!
