In 1970, we fired up the furnace of an abandoned foundry, built in 1926. Adding our own hand-finishing methods to the antique molding and casting tools, and treating each piece as a work of art, we grew, in the spirit of American craftsmanship, to be the Northwest's premier foundry, specializing in hand cast and hand finished solid brass casting.
This seal, stamped on the back of every piece, is our guarantee of your satisfaction in every phase of the work we do, from design proposal, through prototyping, casting and finishing. We pledge that each unit in your edition will hold uniformly to the quality of the prototype, yet reflect an individuality found only in truly handmade products. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, or if the attachment hardware ever breaks, just return it to us and it will be promptly repaired or replaced at no charge.
Thank you for the fast service and excellent craftsmanship.
A custom designed edition begins with a description, a photograph or rough sketch. We will prepare a design proposal. Once the proposal is approved, we will prepare the master pattern and cast a prototype for your approval.
