Many years ago, I purchased my casting studio equipment from a jeweler in Taos, NM. He had also purchased this equipment used from somebody else. The centrifugal casting equipment I purchased all those years ago has been well-loved, casting thousands of pieces throughout the past decade.
But this year, it was time for an upgrade! So I turned to the experts at Rio Grande Jewlery Supply and purchased new equipment so I can cast more pieces at one time, and achieve more consistency.
It's a huge learning curve for me, as I've gotten so used to the centrifugal casting method. Vacuum casting is a whole new technique, and I'm learning as I go. More details to come!
