Metal Finish (Chasing)

Larger sculptures are cast in sections and welded together - these welds are then chased back to blend in with the form. The points of contact for the sprue system, (i.e. where the bronze sprues contact the sculpture) and the welded joins are worked back by our highly skilled Chasers - using the combination of specialist tools and many years of experience.  Their highly skilled workmanship ensures that there is no visible trace of sprue points or joins on the sculpture remaining.

 

It is at this point again, we ask you the artist to come and inspect the work, to ensure that your casting has been faithfully produced, and to make any minor alterations if required before the final patination, which would usually be carried out on the same occasion.
