Lost Wax Casting

For thousands of years the lost wax casting technique has been used in various other industries, for example the casting of jewellery, where intricate detail is required. It was also used to cast the bronze weapons, tools and statues of Ancient Greece and the Renaissance.

The Importance of Hand Finished Products

Our hand finished products are the heart and soul of our business. We believe that there’s something truly special about a product that’s been crafted by hand. Each piece is unique and has its own character.

Our products are not only beautiful, but they are also important because they represent a time-honoured tradition of craftsmanship that is becoming increasingly rare in today’s world.

Our Team

Our dedicated team is passionate about their work and committed to bringing you the very best hardware.

We believe that good quality hardware should be built to last using only the finest materials and techniques to ensure that our products will stand the test of time.

Optimum's Achievements

Throughout the years, we’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as leaders in the industry and have achieved numerous successes. We are incredibly proud of our accomplishments and will continue to strive for excellence.

Colouring Process

Here at Optimum Brasses we prefer to use a fuming process to achieve an aged finish rather than the impermanent and unpopular lacquering method used in mass production.
