The rivers at the end of days will be made of molten silver

Great day! We had a workshop in the Camberwell foundry on sand casting today, and my Iron Age passions were piqued at seeing so much very hot shiny molten metal. I started with a painted wooden bowl mold and ended up with a lovely aluminium bowl! Still needs to be finished with some more filing, but it’s a great first result.

Instead of detailed descriptions, here is the photo process diary:

I like this technique, mostly because I was really taken by the metal. Will go back and talk to Becky to see what I can do about making metal structures base on the drawings in my head. Perhaps I should take a maquette first – something to add to my to do list!
