The Rise of Sand Casting in Decorative Hardware
Sand casting is one of the world’s oldest and most commonly practiced manufacturing methods, but for most of the 20th century, it was not widely used in decorative hardware. Modern design trends for high end, decorative hardware in the past century have favored geometric precision, refined finishes, and machined metal. Sand casting was regarded as crude and unsophisticated. In the early 2000’s, sand-cast hardware reemerged, but predominantly limited to a rustic or “Americana” aesthetic. Today, the use of sand casting is expanding into a new, modern adaptation that embraces the natural variation and “flaws” intrinsic to this process.
