The words casting and foundry conjure images of massive items used in the production and manufacturing space. However, there are many everyday items that had their birth through the delight craft of casting and the technical experience of foundry.
Let me take you through your house, I bet I can find some really cool examples.
First, I knock at your door!
Your door is that beautiful dark stained wood door with metal inserts and double pane glass. That detailed and elegant execution is an example of casting.
As I step into your home, I see the beauty of the inside with the warm photos and the warm lights. But look! Those lights are sitting and hanging from intricately casted fittings.
You kindly, invite me to stay for dinner and you break out those amazing candle holders.
The detailing on those candles have officially changed what comes to mind now when I hear casting.
