End of the Semester (Sculpture)

It has been fun and crazy at the same time as the studio and students grew and produced some great results.  In the picture is the final project (metal casting) and two-part mold project. Casting for metal were out of aluminum and for cold casting consisted of plaster, wax, resin and plastic.

Aluminum Pour

This was the first time metal casting has been done at USCB.  Students from other classes stopped by to see the molten metal being poured.  Most of the students helped pour and we did 4 heats of aluminum in one class period.

Above shows a raw casting just removed from the mold and  to the right a student cutting away the gating of their casting and cleaning it up.
