Kasly Iron Casting.
Nearly 250 years ago the Kasly Iron Works came into being in the Urals. It is remarkable art of iron casting that has made Kasly famous.
The Kasly Iron Works was built in the Chelyabinsk region at the Kasly-Lake at a distance of 130 km from Chelyabinsk. The settlement founded around the factory was rather large. It was most commercially important.
From 1757 the Demidovs, well-known Russian manufacturers, owned the works. From 1809 it was in the possession of the merchant Rastorguev.
The craftsmen cast gratings and furniture. By the 60-s – 70-s of the 18-th century the high-quality artistic casting from Kasly left behind similar products from many Ural factories and other works of the country. This production brought Kasly its fame in Russia and in the world.
In 1860 the Kasly works won the first award - the Small Gold Medal of the Free-Economic Society, then the Small Silver Medal at the Manufacture Exhibition in St Petersburg. The properties of the Kasly iron met all the requirements and in a few years different diplomas, silver and gold medals at the World Exhibitions in Paris, Vienna, Philadelphia, Copenhagen, Stockholm were won.
Many specialists of applied art spent much time working at iron sculpture. Their lives were quite different, individual, and only the love for their handicraft got them together. It is difficult for you to believe that the objects of artistic casting were cast of heavy-weight metal.
The Kasly Craftsmen created not only compositions, portraits, statues but many other things. They cast a great number of caskets, ashtrays, vases, candlesticks, various book-stands, iron door stoves, fire-places, park furniture and other objects.
In recent decades the production of the Kasly works is purchased in the USA, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and other countries. You will see all iron-cast masterpieces if you come to Kasly and visit the Regional Study Museum or the City Museums of Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg.

My native town.
Kasli is my native town. It is situated in Chelyabinsk region. It is an old Ural town, founded by Yakob Korobkov in 1747. First it was a small metal factory which produced primitive iron things.Then Demidov bought that factory. The factory grew and began to produce an artistic casting. Kasli masters Anikin, Remezov, Gilev, Chirkin and Manaenkov worked at the factory. Nowadays there is a museum of an artistic casting in our town. It was founded in 1963 and the first director of it was Emma Maximovna Kolupaeva. The museum contains a great number of documents on the history of Kasli, many pictures and photos. And of course it has a big collection of iron casting, made by great Kasli masters and sculptors such as Anikin, Gilev, Chirkin, Manaenkov and many others. People from the nearest towns and cities come to Kasli to visit our museum and admire the masterpieces of our masters.Come to the museum and you will see everything with your own eyes.
Kasli is not a great cultural centre, but there is a cinema Rossiya and a Palace of culture, which is one of the most beautiful modern palaces in our region. It is the real palace of culture .Almost all great events of the town are held here. Besides near the palace of culture you can see a modern swimming pool and a small sport complex. It is the favorite place for those who like sport games. In summer time sportsmen prefer to do sports on the stadium, which is situated near the beautiful park, where you can have a good rest among enormous pine trees and even gather mushrooms and berries.
In our town there are many monuments and a nice big church. Kasli is situated in a nice place surrounded by many forests and beautiful lakes such as Kirity, Kasli,Irtyash and others. Many people from the nearest towns come to our place to fish, hunt and simply have a rest. Come to our place in summer and you will be greatly impressed by our nature.
