can anyone help recommend a foundry?

i am new to this art form and have undertaken a series of approximate 30 small pieces, ranging in size from about 2" tall to 7" tall. i am looking for a full service foundry and i would like to keep the work local, but realize that may not be practical. i have an estimate from a foundry that i know does high quality work but it is quite a bit higher than i was hoping to pay. can anyone recommend a foundry that they have found does quality work at a very reasonable cost?
thank you all so much for your help with this. coming in as a new member of the community there is quite a bit i still have yet to learn.
thanks again.
greg

Re: can anyone help recommend a foundry?

Just a few miles north of you are two great Foundries:
Art Castings of Colorado
511 8th Street, SE
Loveland, CO 80538
(970)667-1114
www.artcastings.com

Bronze Services
150 2nd Street, SE
Loveland, CO 80537
(970)667-2723

Loveland, CO also has a lot of Independent Artists that will work with you to get your work through the casting process with the quickest speed and best prices. You can either go thru one of the above Foundries or go to the Independent Artists to contract your work. Just go to Loveland and stop at the Visitor's Center and ask for an Art Services Brochure. There are so many casting possibilities in Loveland that the prices are very competitive. I have all my work cast there and I have to travel all the way from Ohio!

Good Luck!
Anita
