How is it Made? SPI's Process Video
SPI is a team of talented 2-D artists, sculptors, and craftsmen, inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us and dedicated to expressing that beauty in extraordinary sculptures.
Each SPI original begins life as 2-D concept art designed by our team of talented artists in Northern California. Our master sculptors breathe life into the artwork with up to weeks of hand sculpting in modeling clay in our own atelier.
Each part is cast in our own foundry using either the lost wax or sand casting method. Artisans take the various cast parts and carefully weld them together. After up to several days of welding, sanding, and polishing, the metal sculpture takes its final form and the patina artists then have their turn.
