About Cast in Bronze

Powderhall Bronze are delighted to present a selected exhibition of over 30 bronze and resin sculptures made by artists who have taken part in our clay modelling course programme over the last four years.

At the Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh, EH3 6HZ
Saturday 22nd February – Friday 28th of February 2020

Powderhall Bronze is a busy fine art foundry in central Edinburgh, producing cast bronze sculpture and fabricated metal projects for artists, designers and a wide range of business clients internationally. The courses began as way to offer an opportunity for people to come into the foundry to learn sculpture making processes and increase their clay modelling skills with support from tutors who are also practicing artists.

Our courses are taught by professional sculptors Alan Herriot and Kenny Hunter. Alan Herriot is an accomplished traditional figurative sculptor who has large scale works sited in throughout Scotland and Kenny Hunter is a contemporary figurative sculptor who makes works for public sites and also exhibits internationally.

These courses offer tuition in clay modelling techniques for anyone who is interested in making hand built figurative sculpture. The clay sculptures are modelled on a metal armature and the finished works are suitable for casting into resin or bronze at the foundry. With small class sizes there is plenty of time for one to one tuition and the course focuses on informed instruction in anatomy, scale, composition, balance and surface.

With this selection of bronze and resin sculptures we hope to show the breadth and quality of the works produced on our course programme. The exhibition celebrates the enduring appeal of working with clay and is a testament to the unique value of the traditionally handcrafted object.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cast in Bronze are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
