Meet the Team

Dan Gentle

Casting metal has been my interest ever since the age of fifteen, when I cast a steam model engine body and wheels at Northam Senior High School. I have perfected my skills via on-the-job training at Australian Bronze, Sydney and Kurandy Castings, Perth. Some of my proudest projects have been "Judith" in Howard Street, Perth; a suite of works for Judith Forrest at Fiona Stanley Hospital, "Yagan" for the National Australia Museum in Canberra, and "Sir Charles Court" in St Georges Terrace, Perth.

Christy Gentle
Co-Director / Office Manager

Dan Gentle Art Foundry is a family affair. 

Dan's children spent time as babies and toddlers visiting his art foundry in Gnangarra, while Christy did the bookwork and marketing. 

Now, the children are hands-on helpers at the art foundry in Goomalling and have all studied art.
