Boston Valley Terra Cotta
Bringing a project to its completion is an involved process that requires several steps to ensure quality in the fabrication of our products.
Over the last 30 years, Boston Valley Terra Cotta has invested $18 million in capital improvements. This has given them a competitive edge by assuring that we produce materials of the highest quality with on-time delivery. The manufacture of terra cotta is a process with specific stages, needs, and time constraints. Boston Valley strives to help clients understand this process by maintaining an open dialogue throughout production to ensure the successful completion of each project.
RAPID PROTOTYPING AND CUSTOM FABRICATION
Our lab utilizes an industrial laser cutter, a 5-axis CNC machine, and a complete suite of architectural and digital sculpting programs to rapidly produce prototypes, mockups and models, molds and dies used in the manufacturing of the final product. The prototypes give us and the architect the ability to understand the design as true three-dimensional parts that can be touched and observed in different heights, angles and potentially various patterns. In some cases these machines and technology cut out tedious or time-consuming parts of the manufacturing process, allowing our employees to focus on the true craft of terra cotta manufacturing. This technology, combined with our historic craftsmanship and material knowledge gives us an unparalleled edge in the fabrication of custom designs.
