Our past projects are a great way to see the diversity of design expression possible in custom cast iron, bronze and aluminum. Most of our projects are completely custom cast from architect drawings or from historic original casting samples.
Castings that have strong geometric features like cast iron stairs or Classical cast iron posts are easily cast from drawings and Richmond Iron provides shop drawing services to fully detail casting designs. For castings that have sculpted decoration like floral or botanical designs, it is very helpful to have original historic castings that can be duplicated or portions of the design duplicated. Richmond Iron can pull molds from original castings to capture the details of a decorative feature and then combine those sculpted details with traditional wood patterns to maker a larger casting.
