From fully dimensional monumental works to this delicate bas relief scarab tile, MGA's mastery of casting is impressive. We love that the Scarab tile can be cast in bronze, plasters, resins, cement, and epoxies! The multi-faceted talents of Aeling and MGA Sculpture Studio exhibits some of our favorite things about casting.
