Dear Mr. Jeffrey Spring, I just wanted to thank you again for a fascinating tour of the foundry! You explained each step in the process so clearly and well that it showed how much hands-on-work and "artistry" is involved in each step of the process. Your craftspeople do an amazing job and make each step seem like part of an elaborate and elegant dance from one step to the next. - Caroline M. Sun

Dear Mr. Spring, I am happy to be working with your foundry once again. Its been a long time since I've cast in bronze. For years now, every time I use a file I hear your father saying, "What are you doing, use the whole length of the file." - Neal Martz

Dear Jeffrey, The cast of my piece "Female Figure with Pigtails" arrived this morning … The cast is absolutely PERFECT. The smallest details - the hair - the little crease where the left arm meets the body - the toes - all PERFECT!! The color is everything I hoped for and the slight tinge of green is a lovely touch! - Professor J. L. Squier

Dear Bob, I have the fondest memories of all you did to help me with my sculptures. My very first large sculpture fell down into pieces in clay. I called on you to help me amid many tears. You came and made everything right. You even gave me a spot at the foundry to rebuild it… Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Sr. Margaret Beaudette
