Casting Small Bespoke Objects

Mary Stuart from our Brisbane studio demonstrates the process of casting small bespoke objects using tin. Starting with the metal in solid form, the tin is heated to 231.9 °C to allow it to be poured into a pre-made mould. Once poured into the pre-cast mould, the metal cools into a solid state, taking the form of the negative shape within.

The final step in casting small bespoke objects from tin is to extract the solid form from the pre-cast mould. Having such a small surface area means the cooling process takes a mere 4 minutes.
