Using lost wax and sand casting techniques, Black Isle Bronze has been responsible for many large commissions throughout the UK and beyond. With a highly skilled team of technicians Black Isle Bronze are now working from the only purpose-built bronze casting foundry in the UK. Black Isle Bronze offers a complete service for almost any bronze based project.
Our strength is attention to detail in the form and texture, combined with our knowledge of classic and contemporary materials, allowing for cast sensitive work and quality finishing.
Our use of structural engineering means that public sculptures are impervious to vandalism.
Black Isle Bronze has been responsible for the following works - Wilf Mannion and George Hardwick at Middlesborough FC, Stan Cullis at Wolves, and 'the batsman' at Lords.Other famous figures include the four heroic scale rugby players at Twickenham, the Bank station dragons, Frankie Dettori at Ascot, Be Friendly at Haydock Park and many more....
We have 20 years experience of casting and installing Monumental bronzes in Europe and beyond.
When selecting the foundry to cast and install the Core Values Sculpture that completes the £140 million South Stand development at Twickenham, we looked for 3 criteria, quality, reliability and the capacity to deliver on time, We awarded the contract to Black Isle Bronze because we were confident that all these key criteria would be met. The finished product is a credit to the dedication, skill and hard work that Black Isle Bronze brought to bear on this most important project from start to finish.Francis Baron OBE

The bronze sculptures on our building in Piccadilly combine fine art and building craft. The quality of the bronze work is vital to their success. We are delighted to be working with Black Isle Bronze to ensure the highest standards of craftsmanship. The combination of a Paisley sculptor and an Inverness foundry brings the art and craft of Scotland to the most important thoroughfare of London.Robert Adam - Robert Adam Architects
Black Isle Bronze have done a dazzling job. I am so proud of the beautiful casts of Peter Pan, and sales are now going brilliantly, giving a great boost to the Moat Brae Trust fundraising campaign. The casting process was far from simple, as the maquette of Peter is as intricate as it is beautiful, but Farquhar and his excellent team solved all problems with aplomb My admiration runs at industrial levels for their skill, kindness and brilliance.Joanna Lumley
They do hard work, well on time, always within budget, and above all maintain a cheerfulness of manner throughout the shop that renders the torture of the foundry-visit a pleasure for the artist. Also, there is no macho-nonsense.. Black Isle Bronze is full of gentleness and smiles. How agreeable.Sandy Stoddart, Sculptor in Ordinary to the Queen in Scotland
