The Monterey Sculpture Center was officially established in 1978 by current owner/operator Charles Fischer. With a degree in sculpture and experience casting his own sculptures, Fischer formed the foundry and, since the inception, has worked with his staff to be pioneers in the development of patinas and casting techniques now standards in the industry. His hands-on experience has piloted the foundry toward producing the finest quality castings and patinas for all of their clients. A distinguished sculptor himself, Fischer’s work can be seen in public and private collections worldwide
