Iron Melt – Part 1


Our little town is home to the Andres Institute of Art. It is a former ski hill that now has walking trails and beautiful stone and metal sculptures. As a fundraiser, they have an iron melt twice a year.

A few weeks ago, we joined in and went to the studio on the summit. There, we received a small square of tightly packed sand and a large spike to carve a pattern into the sand. This would be our mold. For an hour some sixty of us worked on our patterns. Some people carved intricate patterns while others were simpler. When completed, we brought them outside for the next stage.

Tomorrow…it gets hot.
