The Walla Walla Foundry was established in 1980 by Mark and Patty Anderson with the sole purpose of facilitating the creation of contemporary art through bronze casting and fabrication. For over 40 years the Foundry has operated with a steadfast commitment to working with artists to realize their sculptural projects in a wide variety of materials and at nearly any scale. Our facility provides artists with access to cutting edge technologies, which serve to expedite the creative process and enable projects to move fluidly from concept to model to completed artwork.
Our one-hundred talented technicians and artisans understand that artists can often change direction and pivot as the creative process evolves. It has been the hallmark of our company to be nimble and meet these challenges head on. It is this push to achieve exacting results for our clients that has earned the Walla Walla Foundry its reputation as the premiere fine art casting and fabrication facility in the United States.
“If an artist has a finished sculpture, of course we can reproduce it. Now if they come to us with an idea, it’s our role to present the artist with several different approaches to making that work. We’re here to support artists and make their life easier by helping them do their work. I never want our employees to tell the artist what to do. The artists have a vision, something that they’re trying to express. We want to be as exacting in making their sculptures as possible so their ideas come through clearly.”
