Fonderie d'art et Art de la fonte
The company is very innovative, for various reasons. On the one hand it uses a miniature cupola furnace that is unique in the world. This is a shaft furnace with a metal shell and natural refractory lining used to melt cast iron (phosphorous cast iron). And on the other hand, it uses natural sand for artistic casts, which produces very fine details. Lastly, it has developed a special technique for compacting sand, resulting in high-quality removal from the mould. The company works exclusively on specific order. It has carried out restoration work on a number of listed monuments. It has also re-introduced ancient décors thanks to historical research.
