At least, I think that's what you would call it.

The two terms have distinct definitions, it's not a matter of "deserving" anything:

Casting is pouring molten metal into a mold and allowing it to cool and set into the shape you want it.

Forging is pounding metal into shape, using a hammer, a press, or some other form of pressure. (The Wiki says it's "the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces".)

If it's poured in a liquid it's cast.

If it's beaten/bent into shape it's formed.

If it's beaten into shape at a really high temperature it's forged.

Something bent at a high temperature into shape can be considered a forging in some cases (think "mandrel bending" titanium).

pouring molten heavy metals(pewter contains lead) into a wetlands area is generally frowned upon, at least in the US.
