full service foundry, art gallery & sculpture garden

founded in 1998 by a group of men that felt there needed to be an art foundry in this country that

was a "one stop shop", a creative venue that was built for monumental sculptors to begin and

complete their vision using this incredible process...

...we have evolved...

tweeking technologies, inventing methods....making them better!

monumental sculpture is our specialty!
