Shop Schaub and Symphony Cabinet Hardware by Finish

Many of the Symphony items are manufactured using a lost wax process.Over the centuries, the lost wax technique has been used to create many items, including jewelry and bronze statues. An artist creates an original model of a piece of cabinet hardware from wax.Because wax is soft and pliable, this allows for intricate detail in the design.A mold is then made of this original sculpture.When the mold is finished, wax is poured into it to create a hollow wax shell.This shell is then covered with crystalline silica over the entire piece of wax.Once the silica hardens into a ceramic-like substance, the molten brass is poured into it, melting the wax, hence 'lost wax'.Once it cools, the ceramic is broken away, revealing the piece of cabinet hardware.
