Casting Iron in New Mexico

I’ll be casting some iron sculpture in NM this week at Mesalands Community College 16th Annual Iron Pour.

I have 2 small pieces. These are the waxes that I’ll invest, burn out and cast. They’re sitting on a sheet of computer paper for scale.

One is a furrow irrigated crop and the other is dry land! They should prove to be a challenge to cast since each one is about 5-6 inches square and 7 inches tall. Each one will have at least 30 vents on top and who knows how the gate system will turn out!

Wish me luck!
