The Hoselton aesthetic begins as artwork is brought to life.
The hand carved sculpture unfolds in various first stage medium which could include wood, marble, clay or aluminum. Once the look and feel of the final imagery has been refined the Hoselton casting process begins.
The sculptures are made from utilizing recycled aluminum alloy and a sand casting process perfected by Gordon Hoselton and Allan Butters over forty years ago. A sand cast is taken from our original image and a two piece mold is then designed and fabricated from molten aluminum. At a temperature of 1200 degrees °F this molten aluminum is poured into our new mold and allowed to cool. A prolonged polishing process including multiple sanding and polishing procedures is then used to infuse our sculptures with a flowing, luminous polished finish, or a softened, silken brushed finish.
Hoselton’s has also introduced the new colour fusion process which allows us to finish our favourite sculptures in many unique colours. All of these techniques symbolize the uniqueness of a Hoselton sculpture.
