Bronze foundry De Clercq-Ginsberg offers true, traditional craftsmanship

Jimmy De Clercq and Dimitri Ginsberg’s bronze foundry is a genuine hive of activity. Indeed, the work simply never stops! Mould making, art casting, embossing and patinating … anything and everything related to the fine art of bronze work and bronze restoration can be found under one roof. The work is lovingly hand-crafted and produced entirely in keeping with traditional techniques.

Bronze foundry

The De Clercq-Ginsberg art foundry has been casting bronze according to age-old techniques for 3 generations. We employ both the sand casting technique and the lost-wax method, and prefer working with genuine 90/10 bronze alloys to ensure a superior finish and beautiful bronze colour every time.

Restoration

Naturally, we also repair damaged bronze sculptures! Welding broken fragments, replicating missing pieces and retouching damaged patina are just some of the many services that we provide. And we regularly restore bronze art pieces, monuments, jewellery and ironwork too.

Metal coatings

It looks like bronze, it feels like bronze and it even boasts the same technical properties as bronze. And yet … it’s not genuine bronze. Our metal coatings lend almost any material the equivalent allure and benefits of cast metals, without being significantly heavier or more expensive.
