Bollinger Atelier
227 S Rockford Dr.
Tempe, AZ 85281
Tom Bollinger, Director
Phone: (480) 968-4011

Since 1997, Bollinger Atelier has partnered with artists to realize technically complex artworks of superb quality in their Tempe, Arizona studios. The Atelier’s unique combination of technical expertise, rigorous quality standards, and matchless service guide the production of each artwork as it evolves from the artist’s articulated vision into a material reality. Bollinger Atelier works collaboratively with artists, developing each project technically and formally so that the completed work reaches its full potential on time, as designed, and with superb finish.

After many years of foundry experience, sculptor Tom Bollinger purchased Arizona Bronze Fine Arts Foundry in 1997. Though the foundry had been in operation since 1977, under Bollinger’s leadership the foundry matured into an atelier, a site of artistic collaboration where Bollinger and his team of artisans comprehensively manage projects from design to completion.
