ISD

International Sculpture Day

In honor of ISD, here are a few digital designs of new work coming this summer.  It should be roughly 12’H x 6’W x 8’D, hopefully coming to a large concrete pad near you! (or near somewhere NOT my yard)

Last week, I was in Birmingham, Alabama, for the National Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art & Practices (NCCCIAP). The backdrop for this biennial event was Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark, a truly a remarkable venue that stands out as America’s only blast furnace from the last century being preserved and interpreted as an historic industrial site. There was a great slate of activities for the NCCCIAP, including hands-on demonstrations, mold making workshops, student cupola competitions, guest furnace demonstrations, panel discussions, and art exhibitions. The grassroots, intergenerational character of the NCCCIAP was incredibly inspiring, and I hope to get back to Sloss for the next iteration of this event.

Shelter in place!

A day of firsts for myself, the students and faculty at Georgia College.  First time working at a school in Georgia, and their first aluminum furnace was rammed up, everyone is really excited about it.  And, it was the first time lecturing and giving a demo in the middle of a TORNADO.  A surreal experience, but still a fantastic day in Milledgeville.  Thanks to everyone here!
