The Halverson Atelier is the ONLY foundry in the South Pacific!

Challenges Running a Foundry:

In French Polynesia, we have several major difficulties. They are obtaining materials because there are not any foundry supply stores, high cost of living, shipping and market visibility.

I live at the northeast end of the island of Tahiti, in the middle of the South Pacific. The unique Tahitian bronze creations are sculpted in wax and transformed into solid bronze by the lost wax refractory cement process in which molten bronze is poured at the sculpture's atelier located at cliff's edge Tahiti.
