Sculptors Guide to Casting in Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals

For permanence, distinction and professionalism, cast metal sculpture is unchallenged. Casting allows for accurate replication of texture and complex forms. Metal possesses the strength and structural integrity to open much wider avenues of expression than any other sculptural medium.

Sculpture casting is very demanding; technically intensive and capital extensive. Do-it-yourselfers rarely save money casting their own work unless their expectations are low or they plan to make it a full time occupation.

False starts and reworks are frustrating and costly. Time and effort can be saved working with a professional art foundry by planning the sculpture from inception through installation. The aim of this essay is to acquaint the artist with some of the processes involved in sculpture casting, point out pitfalls and answer frequently asked questions.
