Fonderie Fusions was created in 1992 by David de Gourcuff in the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park, by the "Gour de Tazenat", a crater lake near the village of Charbonnières-les-Vieilles, France.

In 1996, the foundry expanded and moved to Charbonnières-les-Vieilles.

In 2016, the foundry was awarded the "Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant" label delivered by the French Ministry of Industry and Trade, which acknowledged its commitment to preserving a living heritage.

In 2017, David de Gourcuff – together with A+A Cooren – was awarded the prestigious Liliane Bettencourt "pour L'intelligence de la main – Dialogues" Prize by the Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation.

Specializing in lost-wax casting, the foundry works with artists, designers, architects and luxury companies from France and abroad, preserving and developing a unique expertise.

In 2018, the foundry extended its activities after purchasing a sand-casting foundry in Saint-Éloy-les-Mines, a few kilometers away from its main buildings. The foundry remains 100% French.

Thanks to its 30-year history, Fonderie Fusions is able to integrate its whole production, from the original work to the casted sculpture. We take pride in guiding artists and designers through every step of the production process.
