Japan has the techniques and workshops for making Buddhist altar items and statues one by one by hand, and those techniques are used for the creation of modern art objects or monuments nowadays. They normally create bespoke casting items and collaborate for one time, but this Bridge across is produced as a sustainable product, which might bring the new direction for the casting industry in Japan. The legs are produced by a sand casting manufacturer in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. The sand casting is the process of placing an original mould in a box and filling the box with sand. The original mould is carefully removed from the sand, and then the same mould is made for both the male and female dies. Those both dies are putting together into a single box. Molten metal is poured into the box. Once the metal solidifies, the external sand mould is destroyed and the metal copied the same shape of the mould. The metal then goes through the process of polishing to add shine, since it leaves grainy traces of sand on the surface.
The material of bronze is heavier than other metals in terms of specific gravity, which gives stability even in small size. Using this bronze’s characteristics, up to 3200-mm-wide tabletop is in this size variation
Rust of bronze surely reflects Japan’s aesthetic sense. The bronze of Bridge across will be slowly aged over time with thin lacquer finish to protect the shine of the material. This product has the value of change over a long period of time.
In most cases, industrial metal table legs are created by bending existing standard-shaped metal pipes for welding. However, the leg of Bridge across is created with the Japanese craft skills of sand casting.
