     A Cast of Characters presents hand cast bronze hardware for your cabinets and your home.  (Click on pictures to enlarge them.)

We hand carve them photo by Deborah Rhoads close up of Mary Ann  working with waxin bas relief (low relief) in wax, then we cast each piece in bronze by the lost wax method ( click here for explanation ). Approximate dimensions are given in each category , oval head screws are included with each piece. Mary Ann Dabritz has been casting for more than 20 years. The pulls and hooks shown here were prompted by client insistence that they wanted her sculptural work on their cabinets. If you would like to see M.A. Dabritz in a four paw drive vehicle, click here.


"Personally speaking, as an art teacher, I really admire the dedication and physical demands required of casting.  Such an old craft that's so little used or taught nowadays.  Rarely do you see artists take the time to share techniques and educate the public.  Your web page is wonderful in that viewers instantly realize how much is involved w/casting, and must
appreciate that your prices are very reasonable!  Moreover, your work is personal and unique, with options of commissioned work!  Truly a departure from today's commercialized mass production!

"Mary Ann Dabritz possesses a rare talent.  Her miniature bronze sculptures have charm and a style that breathes life into their subjects.  She is a joy to work with on commissions - attentive to the client's desires and patient with communications about the project.  It is an honor to own one of her pieces.
