Backyard Beginnings

Gordon built our foundry in our garage and backyard from mostly found materials - including a discarded kitchen oven and hot water heater he found on the side of the road. The furnace was built to run on bio-diesel - and still does.

We started as a fine art foundry casting work for artists and sharing the process through workshops and kits. In the last few years have turned our attention specifically to belt buckles. We love that belt buckles offer a subtle way to say something personal about yourself. And because our buckles are all hand-cast with museum-quality bronze that will last literally thousands of years, they are a great way to make a lasting statement, without getting a tattoo.

    I didn't know anything about casting bronze before I met my husband Gordon. Now I know A LOT about casting bronze. We cast all of our products by hand in our foundry using the lost wax method. Oh, I'm also a copywriter and a mom!

    Owner, Maker

    I fell in love with bronze casting in college and spent the next fifteen years learning all about it by working in fine art foundries. I am also a sculptor and use my foundry to cast my own work.

Hello! We are Gordon and Kate, owners of Bowfield Bronzeworks, a micro foundry in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Cypress Park. We make heirloom quality solid bronze curiosities and belt buckles. We also offer the unique opportunity to create your very own, one-of-a-kind buckle with one of our kits.

Everything in our Etsy shop is cast at our family foundry using the lost wax process, a labor-intensive process that takes any object or sculpture through many steps to get to its final rendering in bronze. The bronze object is an exact replica of the original - down to a fingerprint.
