Seniors pose with the new bronze of their beloved mascot. The graduating class came up with the idea and commissioned the bronze.

 Laran Bronze was proud to have cast this addition to such a beautiful and prestigious campus. It is located in the Student Life Center at Archmere Academy, Claymont, Delaware.

Welcoming First Time Casters

We here at the foundry love to see new clients, especially those not familiar to the casting process. It can be a very gratifying and enlightening  experience to have your work cast and take part in each step of the way to a bronze sculpture. 

 Karen Mcknney's father sculpted this bust of her as a child. The original clay was very old and dry, but stood up to the mold process. The wax came out great! Soon the sculpture will in bronze and last forever!
