Our foundry specializes in the lost wax process. The Lost wax process also known as "investment casting" (cire purdue in french) is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal (usually bronze,brass,silver,or gold) is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. Once the mold is made the wax model is melted and drained away.We use that same method used thousands of years ago, today. We work hard to cast your vision. Our family run foundry has been Casting beautiful works of art for over 45 years.
