The Foundry

The birth of a bronze is the almost magic result of a meeting between the Artist creator, and the Foundry man.

They are Foundry workers, but oh what Artists, I compare them to circus artistes, a true and noble family, extraordinary people. What respect and humility one feels when one beholds their life and their skill.

No spotlights trained on them, always in the shadow of the sculptor, they work behind the scenes, and as if by magic, the light of the Fire illuminates their faces. The supreme master of this alchemical process, the art of illusion has no secrets from him

From molten metal is born a work of art that has to be polished, sublimated to bring out all its lustre.
