Richard produces fine quality lost wax castings (often called investment casting). Typical work includes components for scale locomotives, parts for classic car restoration, antique fittings for lights and furniture.

I'd been looking for a source to produce name badges for ages and failed to find anywhere that convinced me I'd get the quality I wanted.  I was also keen to get them made in bronze. Richard gave me the confidence to proceed as he clearly knew a great deal about the subject and process. He has all the resources needed to go from a flat artwork (a vector file of the logo) to a 3D computer model and on to a 3D pattern - all under his absolute control.

The resulting plates are excellent - the smaller size is 34mm across, and the retention of detail is everything I had hoped for, probably even better.

Parts for classics, including an Austin crest.

Richard is a classic car enthusiast and produces parts which are otherwise impossible to obtain.

My next challenge for Richard will be the components for the sconces - I gave up searching for them long ago and this way I can design exactly what I want.

Richard's range of work is impressive, and the quality is faultless. All that and you get very well looked after too.
