Forlorn Foundry

I'm proud to welcome Forlorn Foundry, our latest sponsor. It's the brainchild of Josef Von Stauffenburg, an artist and metalworker who brings to life some amazing occult and gothic items in bronze.

This bronze skull is available as-is or with custom features like horns. It's an impressive piece of work in terms of both the quality of the sculpt and its sheer size.

Mr. Stauffenburg offers a variety of smaller items, ranging from candlesticks to offering bowls. While their visual appeal is obvious one thing I can't reproduce here is the physical presence of these pieces. A "bronze finish" is one thing, but nothing compares to the heft and feel of real metal.

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to have Forlorn Foundry on board as a sponsor. These are exactly the kind of unique items I love, and I think you'll share that enthusiasm. If you browse the website you'll find some interesting features, including a blog that has details about Mr. Stauffenburg's upcoming appearance on the television show "Oddities".
