An Artist's inspiration comes from the things they are passionate about, whether positive or negative. 


John Tuomisto-Bell

I have over 25 years’ experience in the “Lost Wax” method of casting bronze. At my Phoenix studio, I have built and constructed all the necessary equipment (wax, furnace, burnout, slurry room, metal chasing, fabrication, and patina) to produce, cast and fabricate my work. Currently I co-own and operate the full-service art foundry: Tuomisto Bell Studio Foundry (founded 2001) which produces all of my work and a few prestigious clients like Heloise Crista and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
