These three tiles were cast in a shell mold. Everywhere you see cast iron was once wax. The feeder tube or ‘gate; is on the far left. The white stuff is the remains of the ceramic shell material that was applied on the outside of the wax. Then the wax is burned out leaving a hollow cavity into which molten iron was poured.
