Who We Are

Bronze casting at Laran Bronze Foundry. How bronze sculpture is made

Established in 1984, Laran Bronze is owned and operated by Larry Welker, his wife Diane,  brother Randy, and son Larry. It's located in Chester, Pennsylvania in a large complex that was once a part of  the shipbuilding industry.

Over the years we have perfected the art of bronze casting from miniature to monumental. We the owners and employees are professional artists with degrees, and also produce our own work.

Serious artists look first and foremost for a foundry with outstanding quality. Many of our clients spend time at our foundry working hands-on with their own pieces.

We have been selected for several high profile projects like the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. “The War Memorial commission is the most important of my career,” stated Ray Kaskey, sculptor; “I wouldn't want to entrust the casting to anyone I didn’t have the utmost confidence in.”

We combine age-old skills with the latest materials and technology, including digital 3D scanning and enlarging. Our large facilities allow for work at practically any scale. Please contact us to discuss how we might work with you and your project. We look forward to hearing from you.
