Fabrication in bronze and other metals

One area where things have developed significantly over the past few decades has been the development of welding techniques and materials. We are now able to weld bronze. Not just braze it, but join it by melting and fusing a filler rod of the same composition as the parent metal such that the join is visually and mechanically seamless. Fabrication enables us to use materials effectively and to make components which might otherwise be prohibitively expensive if casting patterns were needed. It also has the great attribute that castings and fabricated components can be combined into one assembly, allowing us to get the best of both worlds.
We also do a good deal of work in brass, steel and (to a lesser extent) stainless. Some examples of projects involving a good deal of fabrication are shown below.
