Elias Artmetal Today Forty Years ago while studying at the Parsons School of Design I started experimenting with creative mold making and casting in a small storefront in NYC. My main goal was to be able to give form to some of my sculpture and design ideas. The response from the buying public was so positive that we decided to start Elias Artmetal with a commitment to maintain the highest possible standards of quality and design. Since then the world around us has seen great change, but our commitment to excellence remains the same.
