Studio West Bronze Foundry & Art Gallery’s Monuments in North America

Over the years, Studio West Bronze Foundry & Art Gallery has created over 100 monuments, which can be seen in public spaces, museums, airports and galleries throughout North America. Through their lost-wax bronze castings, world-renowned sculptors Don Begg and Shirley Stephens-Begg have commemorated some of Canada’s most significant events, along with military and historical figures.

The Process

Don and Shirley are involved in every step, from researching the topic and involving community input, to the designing, enlarging, lost-wax bronze casting, delivery and on-site installation. Each monument can range from life-size to 17” in height. The process can take anywhere between six months to a year to complete. Our 16,000-square foot studio welcomes visitors to see how the sculptures are created – from original clay to finished cast bronze.
