Over 70 years of combined experience
In 2015, realizing that the metro Boston area was going to be without a professional fine art foundry, Dan Kendall founded Sincere Metal Works. With the support of dedicated craftspeople and loyal artists / clients, the business has expanded to include not only bronze casting, but also other metals and services including custom design and fabrication.
We revel in the process of making. We have cast the “uncastable,” and have learned to defy the laws of physics, perfectly executing our clients’ unique visions. Each piece presents new and exciting challenges; we use our artistic and technical expertise to problem solve and find the most elegant solution.
What's in a name?
According to ancient folklore, the etymology of the word sincere comes from the Latin “sine cera” meaning “without wax.” Old world metalsmiths would use wax mixed with metal dust to fill and disguise any imperfections in their castings. Metalsmiths whose work surpassed this need hung a sign above their shop with the words “sine cera,” indicating that their work was flawless and pure.
At Sincere Metal Works we take great pride in our work to ensure it is of the highest quality and design. We work diligently through every step of the process to produce nothing less than perfection. We are constantly innovating, collaborating, and looking for new creative challenges in our designs, materials, and processes. With an immaculate attention to detail, and dedication to our craft, we look forward to working with you to create work that is truly sincere.
