We cast all our metal right here in Sydney, Australia. Once the piece is back in studio, the foundations of the final look are set in this stage. The surface improvement at this stage is integral to achieve the ideal finish. We begin with de-spruing and de-burring the piece to of any large rough areas or inconsistencies. We then go over the surface with emery and a series of abrasives to prepare the metal for soldering, setting and the polish.
