Hello, and a warm welcome to The Shunt Foundry.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a one man artisanal hobby foundry creating quirky non-ferrous castings, offering a range of handmade plaques and ornaments in aluminium and brass.
WHAT WE DO
I have an ever growing range of stock and can create your own personalised plaques with wording of your choice, humour is always preferred. With countless colours available in brass from off silver through gold to near copper and can chemically age brass from Verdigris (green) to deep brown, castings can be hand painted with a wide range of colours and effects and or varying degrees of polish.
I may be able to replicate an original item you have – and being a furnaceman in a local foundry specialising in iron, and a member of the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers I can create something really rather special for you.
Created at the bottom of my garden in 2020, I built my own furnace and fabricating all of my moulding materials from everyday items to recycle, repurpose use natural resources.
My base metals come mainly from recycling drinks cans and copper based items – have a question…pop me an email.
