The Casting Process
How do we cast our items, I hear you ask?
We start with a model of the item that we wish to cast and this model is placed on a frame and very fine damp sand is packed around the model.
This creates an impression, or negative, of the subject.
When making a plaque, the lead is poured into this impression, and once it has cooled it is turned out and is ready for final finishing.
When casting a piece that has a front and a back such as a planter or a statue, two negatives are put together and lead is poured in to make the item. The mould is broken away once the lead has cooled and the time is ready for final finishing.
Some planters are made by joining together flat cast sides so then can be customised to pretty much any size you need.
