The main steps in the process:

  1.  Making the mold
  2. Creating the wax template
  3. Adjusting the wax template
  4. Making the ceramic shell
  5. Pouring the metal
  6. Removing the shell
  7. Finishing
  8. Patina

When planning the project, our craftsmen consider the materials used in the original piece so that it can be preserved, as much as possible. If an original piece is particularly fragile and likely to be damaged, we will notify you before starting the project. Unfortunately, Atelier du Bronze cannot guarantee that art pieces will survive the molding process.

The time it takes to complete a project in our workshop depends on the amount of work in progress and the complexity of these projects. This means that timelines can vary significantly. As a general rule, you can expect 8 to 10 weeks for a small piece and 6 to 12 months for a monumental sculpture. And when calculating complete turnaround time for a project, the approval process needs to be taken into account.
