http://www.bronzeartafrica.co.za The Loop Art Foundry as it is known today was established in 2000 by Michael & Elvy Canadas and is a fine art lost wax casting foundry working for sculptors as well as galleries, collectors and corporate clients wishing to commission new pieces. The Foundry is situated in the beautiful Lowveld ( Mpumalanga Province, South Africa) and is one of the leading art foundries in South Africa specializing in fine art sculpture, monuments, memorials, awards and trophies, portrait busts & full figures. No work is too small, too big or too difficult.
Casting for a handful of artists in 2000, our first premises was a small space at the picturesque Casterbridge Complex in White River and as we grew they accommodated us but by 2009 bursting out of our seems we had to move into a Commercial Factory space in Rocky Drift which could meet our growing needs and opened doors for casting much larger monumental size pieces that we could not previously accommodate. A small showroom can still be seen at the Casterbridge Complex but our new premises offers visitors foundry tours by appointment, student programs & workshops as well as gallery space and a sculpting shop.
Our foundry offers a complete and integrated service under one roof, that combined with our quality and passion is the reason why so many well-known sculptors have come to cast with us. We strive to keep pace with the latest foundry techniques and improvements and with combined experience of over 80 years we together with our craftsmen have produced thousands of sculptures for hundreds of clients. Our castings are of the highest quality as our attention to detail is consistent and dependable. We and our clients share a single passion… to hand craft the world’s most beautiful bronze p
