sandcasting video!

My awesome pal Staci Sawyer Phebus (see her gorge metalwork at juniperbaymetals.com) made this delightful video that shows the sandcasting process. Check it out!

late 2019. personal bark.

Ever since the very first time I made a sandcasting mold in a class at Penland with the outstanding Cat Bates, I have wanted to attempt to cast the pattern made in the sand by the dowel I use to pack the mold. Three years later I finally did it! Super stoked on this new direction.
