I recently had the opportunity to work on a large scale in the realm of Iron casting when I participated in the 2015 National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art and Practices at Sloss Furnaces in Birmingham, AL. It was a fantastic opportunity to make new work, and engage with some of the top artists, faculty, and foundrymen/women in the world who are working in iron. Some images and video of the happenings from the week are below. A huge thanks to all of my large mold workshop mates and the Sloss crew for helping me get a successful casting that approached 375lbs and was really clean.
