Experienced craftsmen create each lead ornament with care and attention to detail. We combine traditional methods with modern technology. Our casting technologies include the age-old process of sand casting and chill casting, which involves pouring the molten metal into permanent molds.
Once a design is finalized, the process starts with a pattern, usually of wood, which is precisely the size and shape of the piece which we are to make in lead. An impression of the pattern is made in sand and molten metal is poured into it. After the metal has solidified, the piece is removed from the sand, cleaned, trimmed, formed, and assembled with other panels into the final piece. Then it is finished, inspected and crated for shipping.
