African Sculpture


Founded in 1987 by Denis Mathews Matbronze is a fine art foundry using the “lost wax” process.

“Lost wax” is a precision casting method that allows Denis Mathews almost total freedom of design and creativity in his art.  All his sculptures are cast in bronze – his medium of choice as bronze is so versatile.  Bronze is warm, with a history dating back to the Bronze Age.  The combination of strength, ductility and its ability to accept so many patinas puts bronze in a class of its own.

Every piece is cast using a precise mixture of bronze blended on site specifically for bronze art.

The art foundry and gallery are situated on the Langata South road twenty minutes from Nairobi city, in the historic area of Karen.
