ASHANTI CASTING TECHNIQUE

 

The Ashanti casting technique was developed by the Ashanti Akan people living in Ghana. The model is moulded in beeswax, the casting mould and the crucible in clay with different admixtures of charcoal and horse dung. The mould and the crucible are joined together. The metal is melted under exclusion of the oxidizing ambient air and poured in a closed system by turning the mould. With this ingenious method, thin-walled objects can be produced true to detail without the use of complicated equipment.
