Richard Cooper & Company work with UK sculptors and designers to create stunning and unique foundry bronze sculptures. The sculptures are available in a variety of sizes across wide subject matters including Country Life, Country Pursuits & Interests, Figurative and Equestrian.
The main Art in Bronze collection sees the sculptures limited to editions as low as 25 pieces for large works and up to 250 for smaller designs. There are also an exquisite range of open edition miniatures in the Butler & Peach collection.
