The Fundición Capa with the union of the I+D+ART philosophy established the objective of this III Edition to bring innovation and new creation techniques closer to both established sculptors and those who are starting this adventure of sculpture and to be able to give them a new way of creation with the technology that Fundición Capa can bring to the 21st century.
The Capa Foundry thanks all the contestants for their effort and participation and will soon start preparing the Fourth Edition of the Fundición Capa International Sculpture Contest.
