Lost Wax Casting Technique
Sankara uses the age-old technique of Lost Wax Casting to create the finest quality mounts and hardware.
Lost Wax Casting dates back some 3000 years, but today with the help of technology, it is used to create almost all Sankara brass hardware.
Forms for handles, mounts and sculpture are hand carved by skilled artisans in wax. This wax is used to create a ceramic mould and into this mould is poured the molten brass. The Lost Wax casting technique allows hardware of incredible detail to be created.
The end result is always an individually produced and unique piece of brass of unsurpassed quality.
