SAW 2014: 8th Annual Intercollegiate Iron Pour
There were three furnaces running for this year's Intercollegiate. One of the furnaces was used on Friday night for a performance pour. Students poured molten iron into holes dug in the wet ground, creating bursts of sparks and molten iron rain (seen in video above). I also ran an Ancient dung-mold workshop and talked to visitors about the process. The two girls I met in Latvia at the 7th ICCCIA (pictured below) also helped with the workshop. It was so good seeing them again!
Ancient Dung-Mold Workshop: September 26th-28th
