We’ve shut the Foundry temporarily to safeguard our valuable staff and join the national effort to beat Covid-19.
Receive our latest news and re-opening date by joining our new Talos Art Gallery emailing list.
You can still request quotes for your future projects and use our in-house moulding service to protect any vulnerable new work nearing completion in your studio – while the Foundry is closed please contact us via the Gallery website.
Meanwhile, Richard and Sara are hard at work building the Gallery, making the most of this fine weather. The aim of this new Foundry venture is to exhibit the fine work cast at the Foundry before they head off to their new owners or join national and international collections.
The creation of the Gallery is through a sensitive renovation of the old dairy buildings at Broads Green Farm, Calne, with authentic cobbled floors, original Elm trusses and antique joinery. It’s a perfect backdrop for our contemporary sculpture – not a sanitised, white space but a living environment which celebrates materials and craftsmanship.
In the photos you can see the original Elm trusses, Victorian roof boards found by Devizes Beechfield Reclamation, and the cobbled floor which we believe is much older than the building. The cobbles are, perhaps, even older than the floor, possibly taken way back from a nearby Roman road.
It’s clear we won’t be able to launch on 27 June, as planned, but we will open with wonderful work by Emma Mac Dermott as soon as Corvid-19 allows.
In the meantime, here is a pop-up show of new work by resident artist Amelanchier Canadensis (see photo below) – not for sale, by the way!
