Morris Singer Foundry

Categories: Commerce, Craft / Design

Founded by John Webb Singer as the Frome Art Metal Works. Cast many of the best known sculptures in London, including the statue of Justice on the Central Criminal Court, 1906. Merged with the Morris Art Bronze Foundry in 1927. Went into receivership in 2005, because Saddam Hussein wouldn't pay for a statue of a flag that they had cast for him. Closed May 2010, but relaunched by the artist Nasser Azam as the Zahra Modern Art Foundation. Later it was relaunched as Morris Singer Art Foundry Ltd.
