Testing my metal..

Sorry, I was a little under the weather when I was heading for class last night and I forgot to bring my camera!  There will several other pours during the course, so I am sure I will get some shots of everyone in action.

In the mean time, I did get a couple of decent images of the result of my work up to this point.

The lighting isn’t all that great since I shot these on my kitchen counter.  It still needs a lot of work, but I thought it might be interesting to show some of the stages.  I thought it was very interesting to see the bronze flow marks on the surface of the plate as the hot metal flowed through the sprue gates.

I borrowed an image from Howard Schatz as my inspriation for this relief.
