In 1988, a promising young artist named Mark Hopkins started a foundry with a unique idea-

he wanted to produce inexpensive bronze sculpture, and make it accessible to ordinary people.

Today, his foundry is one of the most unusual in the world,

enjoying spectacular success, and shipping thousands of Mark Hopkins’ works all over the globe.

The primary source for bronze sculpture has traditionally been fine art galleries

It is estimated, however, that only three to five percent of the buying public ever visit these galleries.

The public at large has had little experience purchasing bronze.

Although people have long admired and respected the medium,

it has often been viewed as something to appreciate only in museums and public settings,

or perhaps in the wealthiest of homes.

Its price has made it appear unattainable for the average household.

Artists and galleries have further promoted this perception by asking the

highest possible price for very limited editions of bronze sculpture.

They maintain that such policies are in the best interest of originality.


With such limited resources,

it is possible to understand the artist and gallery rationale

behind very limited editions and high prices.

However, the fact is that few artists can cast their own bronze

and even fewer foundries are equipped to produce fine art bronze

in sufficient quantities to satisfy the demand of a vigorous market.

Mark Hopkins Sculpture has made it possible.


Mark Hopkins is a master technician of the ancient lost wax process.

Through his knowledge and skill,

and the contributions of many talented craftsmen,

his facility has developed highly efficient proprietary casting techniques,

while staying true to the ancient lost wax process.

These innovative methods have allowed them to create

hot cast bronze for a fraction of the cost most people expect.

They have given Mark the freedom to work more creatively,

so that beautiful, original bronze sculpture can be enjoyed by many,

rather than a privileged few.

Mark Hopkins’ Sculptures are known the world over for their beautifully natural and flowing motion.

While his work portrays a spontaneous moment in the life of its subject,

it also portrays the deep inner “spirit” of the human or animal being portrayed.

He often focuses exclusively on faces and hands,

in order to express the very heart of the emotion or experience.

And even in the very ordinary moments in the daily life of the subject,

Mark manages to convey both nobility and majesty.
