Many bespoke commissions start with a client who is trying to reproduce a casting in the style or shape of a pattern which is no longer available. TBS’s in-house technical team will be able to work with either a sample from site to replicate an existing casting or a detailed drawing to create a product to a completely new design.
Deciding on a material can be tricky and shouldn’t just be done on design alone, consideration also needs to be placed on the life cycle of your chosen material.
