Description

This piece is called A/5-560 after what is written on the pattern mould, and is in a white frame.

A two-piece, old, wooden engineering sand casting pattern mould, that was used to make a part of a machine at the mines over 40+ years ago, has been mounted on glass and framed.

Appears to be floating, and is complimented by it’s cousin, the Industrial Wall Art entitled ‘JA903‘ in a white frame. 

The frame was reclaimed too.  The mould is original and has not been changed since being salvaged from the old factory.  Silicon has been used to attach it to the glass, in order to preserve the wood.

History:

This pattern mould is part of our Simco Range, and was reclaimed from an old engineering company that was closing down.  The founder started the family business in an old cow shed in Johannesburg, and grew it over many years to a thriving 1400 square meters factory, servicing mostly the mining industry.

These moulds were used in the sand moulded casting process to make the parts, and had been sitting gathering dust on shelves in the attic of the factory for many years.

Uniqueness:

We’re excited about this reclaimed wood, as the pattern moulds are each unique, and lend to unusual, industrial looking pieces of furniture and art that is hard to find today.  This is because today most parts are made with computers, and it’s not common anymore to use the old wood and sand moulded casting process.
