Foundry Casting

Foundry casting involves the pouring of molten metal (usually iron) into a mould, this then left to cool and eventually solidify, after which the solid casting is removed from the mould, at which point the mould can be reused to make further copies of the item, should this be required.

Foundry casting is a skilled and deceptively complex process if the correct results are to be achieved. As we expect our castings to demonstrate good, crisp detail and be capable of lasting for at least as long as the items in our library of original Victorian castings, attention to detail is important at all stages of production and we are confident that our partner foundry achieves this at all times. In the past we have provided guided visits to the foundry for clients and representatives of funding bodies and all have been impressed with the attitude demonstrated towards the work and the quality of the castings produced.
