For us, it is a […]

New sculpture by Salvador Amaya. The Spanish Legion.

Salvador Amaya has surprised us again with a commission for the new monument of the Spanish Legion. As usual, the technical aspects of the work are remarkable, depicting a legionary trooper from the African campaign. Cast in CuSiMn bronze by the lost wax technique, the piece was created over a period of three months of close collaboration with the sculptor. […]

Rosa Serra, Balanced aesthetics.

Rosa Serra has always been one of the top artistic influences at our workshop. Her production hoards tons of bronze cast at our crucibles for the past few decades. Such is her importance that she has changed throughout the years the way in which we work at the foundry, rising quality standards and deepening into our technique to satisfy her […]

2021, be nice.

Our world is always dependant on events and visual impact, reason why COVID preventive measures have frustrated a lot of our expectations for 2020.

High-end public art shows and big format […]

Cenotaph restoration.

From time to time we have the privilege of working on pieces older and with far more history than us. The cenotaph at the Paseo de la Constitucion in Zaragoza would be a good example. The first time we lowered those heavy griffins from the obelisk we realized they were made in a time when automated machines and MIG welding […]

Technical means and skill.

At the Artistic Platform J.L.Ponce we understand well the enormous advantage of technical means. We know it because of the decades we have spent working with manual cranes to produce huge monuments, depending always on our effort and ingenuity. Fortunately nowadays all of our facilities are equipped with remote cranes that allow us to carry out any big format sculpture […]

Una primera edición en bronce

El paso de los siglos acaba con casi todo, especialmente con el papel impreso de una tirada de periódico. Quizá por eso el Heraldo de Aragón decidió encargarnos una reproducción en bronce de su primera edición que nos sobreviviera a todos para conmemorar el 125 aniversario de su publicación . Una cosa es segura y es que al menos durante […]
