SOMERSET SCULPTURE AND FOUNDRY
Born in 1966, Digby Veevers-Carter’s earliest memories are of his family's turtle farm in the Seychelles located off the east coast of Africa. The family left Astove in the early 70s and returned to England where Veevers-Carter received his degree from York University. In 1992, he moved to New York City to immerse himself in the arts studying drawing, sculpting, and painting.
Veevers-Carter began his sculpting career carving stone. He transitioned to modeling with wax where he found greater artistic freedom defining his own boundaries of form rather than having them imposed upon him by the size and shape of a stone. By casting and finishing his own work, Veevers-Carter has acquired a deep understanding of the craftsmanship required to invigorate the material, lend depth to the sculpture, and illuminate his artistic expression. For Veevers-Carter, working in bronze is the perfect marriage of inspiration and craft.
Veevers-Carter’s body of work stems from his desire to capture the essence of unspoken emotion and pulls freely from the religious, literary, and artistic movements of the Greco-Roman, medieval and Renaissance periods. His most recent body of work explores movement and detail in nature. He is drawn into the magnificence locked in seemingly simple aspects of life; an insect’s exoskeleton, the stillness of an ancient tree, or the animation of wind.

Somerset Sculpture and Foundry has been casting bronze since 2002. We specialize in collaborating with artists, gallery owners, and art representatives to create the highest quality bronze sculpture specific to individual artists and site needs. Your project is completed from start to finish on site by the foundry team which has been working together exclusively for 15 years.
Molds are made from your original medium and can be used for up to ten years for a number of editions of your choice.
Each wax is individually poured, prepared and available for artist inspection prior to casting.
We cast in small batches to maintain the integrity of your project and produce the highest quality production result.
Finishing and Patina
We excel in the finishing process to ensure original detail and seamless assembly in the final stages of metal fabrication.
Artists are invited on site for patinas to guarantee complete satisfaction of project.
