Simon Allison arrived in England from his native New Zealand in 1984 and set up Red Bronze Studio in London.
In 1993, after many successful years, the business moved to rural Oxfordshire and became Lockbund Sculpture Foundry.
Living with his wife, artist Jane Hamilton, and their children, he developed the business over time and expanded into a large studio foundry.
Lockbund Gallery is situated at foundry's base in Cropredy where there is a large exhibition space and artists studios.
Lockbund Gallery holds regular exhibitions in which resident artists, foundry clients and Simon and Jane's personal collection is shown.
