Latest news: UK sculptor Jon Buck is currently on site working with the Founders team to produce their largest bronze to date. More information to follow soon.
Ten kilometres north of Kasese and in the foothills of Uganda’s impressive Rwenzori Mountains lies Rwenzori Founders, a bronze-casting facility and sculpture gallery.
Supported by UK charity the Ruwenzori Sculpture Foundation, this rural centre for the arts was launched when three Ugandan craftsmen who trained at Pangolin Editions foundry in England returned home in 2008. It has since grown rapidly and the local team now boasts fourteen members.
Unprecedented in Uganda, the foundry offers sculptors the opportunity to have their work cast into bronze in well-equipped studios and with skilled craftsmen on hand at every stage of the process.
The architect-designed Rwenzori Sculpture Gallery is rapidly becoming a popular tourist destination and exhibits a selection of bronzes produced by the foundry as well as other works created during workshops and residencies hosted on site.
All sculptures are for sale and enquiries are welcomed.
We have a new video by Steve Russell showing the foundry team at work casting some of the beautiful sculptures on show in our award-winning gallery.
