Franconia’s Hot Metal Pour


This weekend I had the pleasure of heading out to Franconia Sculpture Park for its annual "hot metal pour." There participants get to carve out their own molds and then watch as those molds are filled with molten iron, and then cooled and cleaned. The result? Hundreds upon hundreds of cast sculptures for people to take home.

Do me a favor, and when watching the below slide show, hit the "expand button" (the one with four arrows) so that you can see the pictures at full size, and read the accompanying captions. Enjoy!
