They may do bronze ware but they do so with this warning
WARNING!! Do NOT use Bronze for Cooking!!
Although the items cast in Bronze look wonderful and, truth to tell
are more historically accurate for early periods, you MUST NOT use
them for cooking if you're going to eat the food.
The bronze is an alloy containing mainly copper and tin, but also has
up to 5% lead and does NOT conform to modern cookware requirements.
Please be aware that there is a serious risk of VERDIGRIS poisoning
from the copper and lead is not something you want to be ingesting
Only use cast-iron if you're going to consume the food you make; if
you're demonstrating then Bronze is fine.
They actually endorse using aluminum in another place on their site
because it weighs less.
