Our Frostad Atelier Foundry, located in Sacramento, California has provided high quality bronze sculpture since 1998. It is a full-service bronze casting foundry and the only bronze foundry in the Central Valley of California. However, we provide a service for artists across the United States who desire quality casting and expert finish work. We produce sculptures from small maquette sizes to monumental sizes. We have installed monumental sculptures in many areas of the United States including Wake Forest, Bowling Green, and Queen Universities, the United States Olympic Training Center, and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. We strive to produce the effect in the final product that the artist envisioned. Our foundry is trusted by artists throughout the United States.
Our Frostad Atelier fine art Gallery is located in the foundry premises in Sacramento, California. We often feature specific artists mainly from the Sacramento and San Francisco Bay area. The high-end gallery exhibits both two and three dimensional art of excellent quality and attracts clients from all areas of Northern California.
Frostad Atelier Foundry is under the direction of Ronnie Frostad, an artist in her own right. She studied art at the University of California Davis, and her work includes paintings, sculptures, sketching, and calligraphy. Her commissioned work in California includes bronze sculptures in Rincon Park, San Francisco Embarcadero, Roseville, California, McClellan Business Park, Sacramento, Bill Santucci Courthouse in Placer County, South Lake Tahoe Community College, and many other locations in the United States.
Ronnie has worked in bronze for over 25 years and enjoys sharing her expertise with artists and those interested in art. She has taught a semester course in sculpture and bronze casting at Consumes River College in Sacramento and currently teaches weekend workshops in the foundry in sculpture and basic bronze casting techniques. She also offers individual consultations for artists to discuss art conceptions and current works.
Ronnie works closely with her experienced foundry staff and oversees each sculpture from the initial sculpted piece, usually in clay, to the final patinaed sculpture. She personally inspects each finished sculpture to assure perfection as specified by the artist.
We provide excellent bronze castings of all sizes.
There are no sculptures too small or too large for us to
produce. We offer complete foundry services of the
lost-wax process including mold making, wax work, finish, patina, and mounting. Large monumental sculptures are installed on site. All of our employees are experienced artisans and take great pride in their work. They work under the direction of Ronnie Frostad.
Ronnie Frostad welcomes the opportunity to assist
other artists with their artistic ideas and potential
work with her extensive knowledge of bronze casting.
She often assists the novice sculptor with minor
adjustments to their clay sculptures prior to
beginning the casting process.
Ronnie has received many commissioned contracts
over the years including both two and three-dimensional
works. Her calligraphy style of writing has also been part
of many relief sculptures.
Bronze sculptures left in the outdoor environment will
eventually degrade if not maintained properly. We offer
a service to restore bronze sculpture to its original luster
through re-patination and application of a sealant to
reduce future deterioration. The City of Sacramento and
many companies throughout the United States contract
our foundry for restoration or repair of their bronze sculptures.
