Nowadays the metal work can be truly artful to conceive a wide range of large-scale structures, assemblies, to the most delicate jewelry. It requires discipline, vision, and strength. Since early, Boca do Lobo has no restrained to use different processes and tools to shape new designs, by giving to our pieces rough yet powerful expression.
One of the processes we appreciated the most is the art of casting metal, where the metal is heated until molten into a chosen shape and size. It gave birth to outstanding pieces like Newton series or the iconic Eden series. The process starts by melting metal into a liquid, pouring it in a mold with a cavity of the desired shape, and removing the material, or casting after the final work gets cool and then solidified. The solidified part can be ejected or even broken out of the mold. This technique is one of the most used for making intricate forms that would be difficult to have from other methods, including the sand casting.
