Services for Collectors & Institutions
We supply corporate and retirement gifts, safety awards, and fine art bronzes for home or office. If you are interested in purchasing a piece of art or commissioning a monument, please feel free to contact us at any time. Our bronzes and monuments range in price from $300 to $250,000 and in sizes from 3” to 14’ heroic scale. No project is too big or small.
Outdoor public bronze statues and monuments are researched, designed, enlarged, cast, and finished in bronze. These are then delivered and installed entirely by Don Begg Studio West.
“It was Our Great Fortune”
It was our great fortune to ring the bell and have the door answered by the granddaughter of the founder. She graciously gave us a tour of the foundry and the adjoining gallery. She was extremely busy and only a few employees were working. However, she spent almost an hour explaining the history of her family and showing examples of the work the business currently does. This is an experience well worth your time.
