Mother nature is a generous being. And we always find a way to make good use of her precious gifts…

Smoothing, mounting and polishing of bronze pieces is the final episode for the metal parts of our “Atelier Terra Madre Story”. Before bringing all the materials of mother earth, old Armenian masters of Grand Bazaar touch with their ancient information and techniques.

We shaped it with the light of the masters and preserved it with the same purity…

Sand casting, also known as sand molded casting, is a metal casting process characterized by using sand as the mold material.  It begins by making a pattern in sand and then creating a mold from the sand. Next, liquid bronze is poured into the hollow mold. Once the metal has cooled, the mold is removed, leaving the bronze object, referred to as a sand casting. Although this method is time-consuming, it allows for the creation of a wide variety of shapes that may not be possible with other processes. The methodology of this magic technique didn’t change since 3.000 BC and we’re using the same light of our masters from those days.

Everything starts with a single touch…

Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has sustained few changes since then.
