Testimonials

“I have worked with Artcast for many years, trusting them with the repair and restoration of bronzes, from maquettes to full-sized outdoor sculpture. It has always been a pleasure to work with them and the work has always been of excellent quality.”- Miriam Shiell


"I’ve had many small 3D pieces and one large bas relief piece cast at Artcast. I have also attended a training course there. I have been nothing but satisfied with the service and the quality of the work. Whenever I phone I am greeted like an old friend and receive prompt quotes and realistic timelines. I have no hesitation in recommending Artcast." - Jim Maunder


"For well over a decade now I have had the great fortune to have had my sculptures cast by Art Cast Inc. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the outstanding and exceptional services that your company has provided to me over the many years. Your staff is not only attentive and helpful but knowledgeable and genuinely interested in helping as my practise as a sculptor expands.

Many of my clients from museums to art galleries; corporations to the private collector worldwide are always impressed with your extraordinary work as am I. Invariably I am asked “What foundry do your work with?” and I reply “Art Cast Inc. of course!” - Christian Corbet, Regimental Sculptor – The Royal Canadian Regiment, Sculptor in Residence – Royal Canadian Navy, Forensic Artist in Residence – University of Western Ontario.


"ARTCAST’s longstanding pursuit of casting excellence has served Canadian sculpture ....beautifully! Staff members have put exacting methods into practice, and the firm has nurtured an admirable level of craftsmanship. Technical aspects are carefully resolved and I’ve enjoyed many sessions in the foundry shops!" - Ruth Abernethy


"ArtCast is a unique enterprise that treads the tricky and delicate balance between art and business.  After weeks or months of work, entrusting one’s precious artwork to someone else to be cast in bronze is a hard parting.  For almost twenty years, ArtCast has never let me down…there is always a solution. Respectful consideration and capable resolution of every challenge presented to them can only come from experience and talent and enjoying what they do. Because, in the end, trust is what it is all about." - Hilary Clark Cole, AOCAD


"I have cast with Artcast for just under 30 years.  I have cast with other foundries in the past but have returned to Artcast.  I don’t expect to ever leave.  The quality of their work is quite simply second to none and their prices are fair and outstandingly consistent (always important to a working sculptor).  They are always enthusiastic and willing to “go the extra mile” to satisfy my needs.  This is a wonderfully humane group of professionals who always do their utmost to make me look good.  I give Artcast my highest possible recommendation." - George Bartholomew Boileau


"I have known Artcast for many years. When I was a keen young art student at The Ontario College of Art, sculpture and foundry program in the mid 70’s, the technicians there recommended that I ought to talk to this guy, Eric Knoespel who owned a foundry called Artcast in Georgetown. When I met Eric and his team, it was clear to me that they were deeply committed, knowledgeable and cared about the art work they were producing in bronze.

Many years have passed since those early days. Now I am one of those recognised sculptors that I wanted to become when I was a young student. I owe a great deal to Artcast. For nearly forty years the Artcast team has taught me techniques, showed me better ways to do things and generally helped me as an artist. Artcast has grown into a true “old world artisan” family business. There is a great deal of knowledge there that I have never experienced with any other foundry.

The Artcast expert collective team finds solutions to any difficult casting problems. They have a very creative practical or outside of the box approach that always works. They know their business, are helpful and very easy to work with. Their work, the perfect castings, invisible welds, artistically comprehensive wax chasings and brilliant patinas are the best, always reliable, in budget and on time. There have never been any worries when Artcast has produced my bronzes. The work is and has always been top quality. It’s important to find an artist foundry that you can count on. Artcast is that foundry." - Dave Clendenning


"Since 2005 Artcast has cast over twenty of my sculptural figures. Their bronze casting is impeccable in its quality and attention to detail.  Artcast’s highly skilled staff works with the customer and the owners to  provide the best possible bronze casting experience. Thank you Marcus and Cathy." - Marlene Hilton Moore.
