The Luted Crucible

Santa Fe, New Mexico | 1 Sale

Announcement    I first learned the Luted Crucible process of metal casting from hereditary indigenous metal casters in rural India. The process is pre-industrial, meaning it uses only natural materials. For instance this ring was made first in raw beeswax, enveloped in a special mix of fine sands and clays to create a mould. A clay crucible was made, filled with sterling silver and attached to the mould to form a Luted Crucible. This was placed in a charcoal furnace in the ground and heated to melt the metal after which the Luted Crucible was inverted allowing the metal to flow down into the mould.

I have been working with this ancient art for the last ten years to develop my proficiency and am now, finally, proud to be able to offer a new line of jewelry that has roots in this ancient process.

Please see my website under the same name as this shop for more information about the Luted Crucible.
