Welcome to SHIDONI, among the nations leading bronze foundries. We specialize in Enlargement, Mold
Making, Lost Wax
Casting, Fabrication and Patina. The 14,000 square foot facility pours ~9,000 pounds of bronze per month,
with a single pour
capacity of 750 pounds and as much as 750 pounds into a single ceramic shell.
An "open door" policy has always been the rule, resulting in a personalized work environment
for visiting artists. Many come
to the foundry for extended periods of time to create unique and edition works in cast bronze and aluminum.
As a full service
facility, SHIDONI offers the best of traditional techniques as well as state of the art developments
in the craft. Our goal is to
assist the artist in achieving their vision.
Over thirty-six years of experience and growth makes us a leader in the industry and we are known throughout
the world for
our expertise in monumental casting. Yet, while we specialize in the large scale work we cast
work in all size ranges.
It is, however, our people that set us apart from the rest. Made up almost entirely of working artists
themselves, our team
understands the specific needs and sensibilities of the artist. Each team member at SHIDONI takes their
the artist and the quality of the finished piece as a personal quest to be the best. We truly do have
a team second to none.
The foundry is open to the public for self guided tours Monday - Friday between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00
p.m. and 9:00 am to
5:00 p.m. Saturdays. Bronze pours occur every Saturday afternoon, year around, and are open to the public
at no charge.
