Description
Sculptor, Lloyd Le Blanc studied at Yale University where he built his first major foundry. His pre-university method of pouring bronze was a crucible placed in a hole in the ground, fired by blowing mains gas and air through an old vacuum cleaner, every one headed for shelter when he lit up with an oily rag. It is a different story now, since 1973 he has worked from his own state of the art foundry Leicestershire, England in partnership with fellow sculptor Judith Holmes Drewry.

The two sculptors maintain optimum control of their work through casting their own work together with their team of expert craftspeople. The foundry also casts for a small group of other sculptors to include Dennis Westwood, Simon Manby and the late Sidney Harpley.
