Vanguard Sculpture Services is a full service art foundry.  By full service I mean we do it all, mold making from your original art, enlarging of your scale model, bronze casting, fabrication, installation, restoration, repair, patina and original art and design.  We produce museum quality castings by paying close attention to detail and the use of the highest quality silicon bronze alloy and ceramic shell investment.  We frequently cast life size works but also do smaller parts and larger monuments.  If sand casting or alloys other than bronze are needed, we have an off site facility which we employ.

Our facility has 22,000 square feet of space conveniently located in Milwaukee’s 30th Street Industrial Corridor.  The building has 2 docks with large truck access and a 5 ton overhead crane to handle all of our lifting needs.  If you need a place to enlarge your work we can accommodate you by providing a space.  We have been incorporated since 1996 and the owners have a 21 year history of collaboration in the bronze casting business.  We service many artists throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Vanguard’s entire staff is practicing artists who enjoy the challenges of working with other talented individuals. Our mission is to reproduce your intent with the most integrity possible.

If you have considered casting your work in bronze, or creating an edition in which each piece is a finely executed piece of art, Vanguard Sculpture Services can work with you to help you accomplish this.  Whether you work in wood, stone, clay, or other materials, there is a way to design a mold of your original art.  A mold is a tool used to cast wax patterns that will be burned away as part of the lost wax process.  A bronze is then cast of your original art.  An edition allows you to sell your work more than one time; you control the number of copies made and sold.

If you have any questions, would like to chat or take a tour of our foundry please give me a call or email me anytime.  Our website can give you a more detailed look at the process and what we do.

Thank you,

Beth Sahagian and Michael Nolte
