once a year arctic fires bronze sculptureworks hosts art on fire at wasilla museum of transportation. mister jones attends blacksmithing meetings at the shop owned by artist patrick garley and he asked me to come see what happens at an iron pour. fascinating work, this breaking cast iron into workable pieces, feeding them into the fiery cauldron, waiting for the slag to pour out, then comes the liquid iron. the white hot iron was poured into molds purchased ahead of time by the public. all in the name of art.
art on fire.
crazy beautiful hot work, this.
