The Art Foundry Perseo SA, was established in 1952 in Mendrisio, Switzerland; it has always
maintained and demonstrated strong ties with the art world and its sculptors.
The Art Foundry Perseo’s use of top-quality materials, its strong technical support, and the expertise of its suppliers make it the leading foundry in Switzerland. Together with the traditional Lost Wax Technique, it specializes in the Vacuum Technique and in the Ceramic Mold Casting Technique.
Over the past seventy years, the Art Foundry Perseo has collaborated with numerous famous editors, gallerists, and artists such as Salvador Dalí, Rolf Brem, Nag Arnoldi, Alfredo Battistini, and many others.
The company takes its name from the first documentation of the “lost wax” process by Benvenuto Cellini: the “PERSEO”. This ancient technique, which dates back as far as 5000 BC, is still used to cast bronze sculptures. The process allows a bronze sculpture to remain completely faithful to the original model created by the artist.
