Foundry

DSW offers the opportunity to work with diverse sculptural media. The foundry casts aluminium, stainless steel and bronze, often used in combination with other media such as granite, concrete and marble. Members of DSW are encouraged to pursue their own artistic careers and to make use of the foundry and studio facilities.

DSW has created various large-scale public monuments and portraits, such as Chief Tshwane, Brenda Fassie, Gert Sibande, Es’kia Mhpahlele and Solomon Mahlangu.

These sculptures were commissioned by both private and government organizations in memory of historically celebrated figures from South Africa. The representations of these pivotal historic persons help re-write the imbalance of South African history that offers significance to an aspect of our history which was neglected before.

The casting and finishing of the projects, The One Brother and the Dark Cloud (by Angus Taylor), Cogitator and Know Thyself (by Norman Catherine) exemplify technically complex foundry processes. The relation between the scale of the sculptures and the finely textured surface detail called for extensive laborious finishing whilst the height, weight and canter leverage of the forms required intelligent joining and construction engineering.


At the same time, it is difficult to explain all rolex replica uk the ways a Rolex watch is different than those produced by other companies. When it comes to metal, I don't think I've seen anything from another company that is as good as Rolex's work. Most steel wrist watches use a form of stainless steel replica watches sale known as 316L. Rolex does not. Starting about 15 years ago, they began to use an alloy known at 904L steel. Rolex takes rolex replica their metals very seriously, and I discuss more about that rolex replica here, in discussing how Rolex has an in-house metallurgy department. 904L steel is more difficult to machine than 316L steel and, as far as I know, Rolex is the only company able to mass produce 904L parts. 904L steel polishes up a bit better, and has the look of rolex replica sale white gold a little bit, given its finish, which is slightly whiter than most other steels.
