Bill Mack’s dynamic monumental sculpture of children’s blocks challenged American Fine Arts to engineer the illusion of tumbling blocks. An almost impossible task! Recently installed in the newly constructed Four Seasons Hotel in Minneapolis in 2022.

Welcome to the New Bronze Age.

Imagine technology-enabled bronze casting with zBrush! Shape, texture, and paint digital virtual clay in a real-time environment, and then output any scale Marquette’s with 3D printers. Or choose to direct cast using the “Lost Print” method instead of lost wax casting. Imagine casting without molds and large-scale models. 

American Fine Arts Foundry works at any scale from monumental to miniature and continues the old traditions in a modern full-service factory for artists and designers.

Our foundational practice is Bronze Casting. 

We tame fire and flame pouring liquid metals into molds and applying secret patinas of chemical combinations. Formulations that deliver thousands of color combinations from handwritten receipts handed down through generations.

Our modern factory is filled with master craftspeople utilizing historic and ancient traditions who have created some of the most iconic artworks, and some of Americas timeless collected works.

American Fine Arts pioneered the process of using the VoxelJet Industrial scale printer for art foundry projects. An Industrial scale additive 3D print method that allows artists to bypass traditional mold making and life-size sculpting by using the “lost print” casting” process. 

A recent example using the process is the seven-and-a-half foot tall bronze, Superman statue in Burbank commissioned by the City of Burbank.

We serve only a very limited number of clients each year to produce the highest quality of sculptural craft and conceptual problem-solving. We work intensely within the brand of each individual artist to facilitate to execute their original intent, always within the required deadlines and cost estimates.

There is something beautiful and dangerous about a working foundry. It’s amazing that the technique of lost wax casting is still virtually unchanged for the last 7000 years. The startling thing is the timelessness of the art—the age-old technique of Lost Wax Casting.
