Artworks Foundry

Lost-wax casting

Artworks Foundry is world-renowned for creating bronze castings using the “Lost Wax” method. Using this method, we can reproduce any artwork in bronze, honoring the integrity of the originals.

The term ‘Lost Wax method’ describes the following process: Create a mold of the original sculpture, cast a replica in wax, embed the wax in a resilient ceramic shell, heat the shell to 1,700° F to melt out the wax - here is where the process derives its name, and finally pour molten bronze into the resulting empty cavity.
