I love the opportunity to give you a quick and
illustrative information about casting with one of my own pieces.
In the lost wax casting process, the casting in
created using a centrifuge.

Ones the wax model has been invested in a flask
mold (you can see more than one wax on the pic bellow), it’s embedded in
investment plaster, then the wax is eliminated from the mold by heat, after
been on the kiln for than 8 hours, the flask mold in mounted on the centrifuge
in a crucible in which metal is pour in an amount sufficient to fill the mold.

The centrifuge does its work and after a couple of
minutes you can take the flask and poured it on the water.
The result is amazing, you have now the pieces in
metal ready to be attached and polish!
