Making-of-Process: Bronze Mortar and Pestle

Making-of-Process:  Bronze Mortar and Pestle

Coming soon is a series of solid Bronze Mortar and Pestles.  Each one is unique and was cast using the lost wax method typically used bronze sculpture and jewelry.

Utilizing 3D Printing we create prototypes to further refine the design and work as a foundation for production. 

Next we will work with the artist/maker to bring the product to life using traditional and sustainable materials.
