Fine art foundry Bollinger Atelier has transformed artists’ visions into reality since 1997. From Ed Mell’s Jack Knife in Scottsdale to Chandler’s AJ Chandler and Frank Lloyd Wright, the atelier’s output has touched the visual culture of many cities across the Valley. Over the past 25 years Bollinger has become a trusted partner for artists worldwide, including Tom Sachs, Kiki Smith, Lynda Benglis, Wendell Castle, Louise Bourgeois, and many more.
The heart of Bollinger Atelier is its roster of highly-trained artisans, nearly all of whom are also working artists. In addition to the advanced technical feats staff complete for clients, they are encouraged to produce their own sculpture using the Atelier facilities. As a result of this close-knit creative community, Bollinger Atelier fosters a thriving culture of artistic creation.
This show represents the breadth and talent of the artisans of Bollinger Atelier.
