The Foundryman Creed
Updated: May 24
I am a foundryman, a craftsman of metal,
Forging creations with skill and mettle.
With molten metal and sand as my tools,
I shape the future with my hands, strong and true.
I honor the ancient art of sand casting,
A tradition passed down, everlasting.
In the heart of the foundry, where fire roars,
I bring to life the components the world adores.
I hold the secrets of the sand,
Molding intricate shapes with steady hand.
With precision and care, I craft each mold,
Ensuring quality that will never fold.
From the furnace, flames ablaze,
I melt the metals with an expert gaze.
Guided by knowledge, experience, and skill,
I pour the molten essence, my purpose to fulfill.
I am the guardian of metallurgical alchemy,
Balancing alloys with unwavering accuracy.
Through science and art, I shape the cast,
Creating strength that will forever last.
I embrace the challenges, the heat, and the toil,
With perseverance and dedication, I never recoil.
In the foundry's crucible, I find my pride,
Creating pieces that stand the test of time.
I am a foundryman, a custodian of tradition,
Preserving the craft with unwavering ambition.
Through innovation and timeless technique,
I leave an indelible mark that others seek.
As a foundryman, I carry the flame,
A torchbearer of history, with passion untamed.
With every cast and every creation,
I honor the legacy of the foundryman's vocation.
In the foundry's heart, I stand tall,
A craftsman devoted to the call.
To shape the world with fire and sand,
I am a foundryman, forever at hand.
