This section explains why copper has been the preferred material for sculpture, how these pieces of art were made at different times in history, and features many examples of fine works throughout the world and in Canada today.

Many of the images in the first two sections of this website belong to the CCBDA and document various projects that have been undertaken by a CCBDA Member Company, Artcast Inc (http://www.artcast.com), Canada's premiere company for the casting and fabrication of art and sculpture throughout North America.
