Material: Solid Brass
The Cire Perdue Brass Casting Method
All our solid brass items are made with the intricate wax casting process that has a rich history. The method used to craft this process is entirely handmade and was known long ago. The French call it Cire Perdue - which stands for a process used in metal casting that consists of making a wax model, coating it with clay to form a mould, heating until the wax melts, and runs out of small holes left in the mould, and then pouring metal into the space left vacant. When the metal inside is dry the clay is removed and the product is ready to be cleaned and polished. You can recognize that each product must be made with care for detail in this relatively long process. Needless to say that the length of processing every single item is different and that even the weather plays a significant role in making brass items as when the weather is rainy they need longer to dry and need weeks to be finished.
Anyhow, we do accept custom orders but they might take a month or two to be finished.

Raw brass tarnishes over time. Some people like the worn-out look but if you want to keep it shiny, it will require occasional polishing to maintain its bright finish.
