It can take anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks for one casting depending how busy a foundry is. In conclusion, remember that as an example if there are going to be 50 bronze castings in the edition, this whole process is done over and over for each number in the edition. They are truly original castings. The only step that can be "re-used" in casting another number in the edition is the "mother mold" in the very beginning. Once all numbers have been cast (the amount of numbers is decided by the artist before casting begins), the mother mold is destroyed.
