Description

About Campania International
Established in 1984, Campania International's reputation has been built on quality original products and service. Originally selling terra cotta planters, Campania soon began to research and develop the design and manufacture of cast stone garden planters and ornaments. Campania is also an importer and wholesaler of garden products, including polyethylene, terra cotta, glazed pottery, cast iron, and fiberglass planters as well as classic garden structures, fountains, and cast resin statuary.


Campania Cast Stone: The Process
The creation of Campania's cast stone pieces begins and ends by hand. From the creation of an original design, making of a mold, pouring the cast stone, application of the patina to the final packing of an order, the process is both technical and artistic. As many as 30 pairs of hands are involved in the creation of each Campania piece in a labor intensive 15 step process.


The process begins either with the creation of an original copyrighted design by Campania's artisans or an antique original. Antique originals will often require some restoration work, which is also done in-house by expert craftsmen. Campania's mold making department will then begin a multi-step process to create a production mold which will properly replicate the detail and texture of the original piece. Depending on its size and complexity, a mold can take as long as three months to complete. Campania creates in excess of 700 molds per year.


After a mold is completed, it is moved to the production area where a team individually hand pours the liquid cast stone mixture into the mold and employs special techniques to remove air bubbles. Campania carefully monitors the PSI of every piece. PSI (pounds per square inch) measures the strength of every piece to ensure durability. The PSI of Campania pieces is currently engineered at approximately 7500 for optimum strength. Each piece is air-dried and then de-molded by hand. After an internal quality check, pieces are sent to a finishing department where seams are ground and any air holes caused by the pouring process are filled and smoothed. Pieces are then placed on a pallet for stocking in the warehouse.


All Campania pieces are produced and stocked in natural cast stone. When a customer's order is placed, pieces are pulled and unless a piece is requested in natural cast stone, it is finished in a unique patinas. All patinas are applied by hand in a multi-step process; some patinas require three separate color applications. A finisher's skill in applying the patina and wiping away any excess to highlight detail requires not only technical skill, but also true artistic sensibility. Every Campania piece becomes a unique and original work of garden art as a result.


After the patina is dry, the piece is then quality inspected. All pieces of a customer's order are batched and checked for completeness. A two-person packing team will then pack the order by hand into gaylord boxes on pallets. The packing material used is excelsior, a natural wood product that has no chemical additives and may be recycled as display material, repacking customer orders, mulch,or even bedding for animals. This exhaustive process ensures that Campania will remain a popular and beloved choice when it comes to garden decor.

    Pick the right color

    Comments about Campania International Oscar The Gargoyle Cast Stone Garden Statue:

    My gargoyle doesn't look anything like this. Perhaps I picked the wrong color, but my copy doesn't have nearly this kind of detail or expression. I'm disappointed, but I'm sure not sending back a sixty-five pound item. Maybe it will weather. I sure didn't get what I expected.

    Comments about Campania International Oscar The Gargoyle Cast Stone Garden Statue:

    Love this guy! Altho' I got the green, which I wanted, I think now the lighter color would have give some better detail, although my lil' Oscar is just fine! What terrific packing! Glad those deliver guys are strong, becuse I could hardly lift the thing out of the box. He is going nowhere in any of our Colorado breezes!He is under a covered porch, so we will wait to see how he fares this season. Well worth the short waiting time. Really nice quality. Thanks!

      Comments about Campania International Oscar The Gargoyle Cast Stone Garden Statue:

      Just purchased 2 of these gargoyles and they are just awesome! The details in the stone make Oscar look like he is alive! Im sure anyone will think twice before entering my house! Unfortunately, one arrived broken in the box. Within minutes, I called customer service, and in another couple of minutes the replacement gargoyle was ordered! No questions, no problems! Gardenstatueshop.com is a great place to make a quality purchase!
