Backed by historical expert knowledge, the Brandenburger Manufaktur Lauchhammer specializes in individual dye production, drawing on traditional methods.
The art foundry looks back on more than 280 years of tradition. Erected as an ironworks “Lauch-Hammer” in 1725, the manufactory not only managed the world’s first one-piece castings, but also the first bell casting. With the Luther monument in Worms, the manufactory became known in the 19th century even beyond its national borders. Today Lauchhammer specializes in the replicas of artistic utility and decorative objects. Also grave decorations, elements for street furniture and historic door and window fittings are produced. The art foundry’s designers mainly rely on the traditional hand molding of sand casting and lost wax techniques, complemented by the ceramic molding process. In addition, both own and foreign Kunstgußexponate be restored.
