The Foundry - Morris Singer Ltd
Morris Singer is the oldest established fine art foundry in
the world and has worked with most of the major sculptors from
Thornycroft and Gilbert in the early days to Hepworth, Epstein
and Moore, and many more recent artists like Eduardo Paolozzi,
Michael Sandle and Philip Jackson.
For over a century and a half, skilled craftspeople at Morris
Singer have worked with artists to create works of art, large
and small, from maquettes to the magnificence of metal sculptures
and statues, monuments, memorials and architectural metalwork.
Morris Singer has cast many historically important monuments
all over the world - from the Lions and Fountains in Trafalgar
Square (1867) and Figure of Justice atop the Old Bailey (1906)
in London to the Victory Arch in Baghdad (1988), the Holocaust
Memorial in Toronto (1991) and the Commonwealth Soldiers Memorial
in 2002. We are also delighted to have completed the furniture
and bronze work for the new Trafalgar Square piazza in London.
Major statues in London include Oliver Cromwell, F D Roosevelt
in Grosvenor Square and the 1997 Monument to Raoul Wallenberg.
Morris Singer also specialises in casting sporting monuments,
including the statues to Sir Matt Busby (1996) and Sir Garfield
Sobers in Barbados (2001), Shergar, Ireland (2001) and the statue
commemorating England's 1966 football World Cup Champions (2003).
Morris Singer was selected as the foundry for the project
due to the high level of specialist expertise that is needed
for such an intricate, quality design.
