DUMBO IRON 2011
I'm teaming up with the Sculptors Guild to host a molten iron demonstration as part of the DUMBO Arts Festival http://dumboartsfestival.com/events/iron
on September 24th from 3:00 5:00 pm
where we will cast forty souvenir medallions before the eyes of festival goers on the streets of Brooklyn. Most of the medallions will be gifted to those onlookers who show the greatest enthusiasm shortly after they are broken free from their sand mold encasement.
The central players for this rarely seen spectacle of molten metal metallurgy will be Kenneth Payne, Michael Dominick, Gina Miccinilli, Adam Nowicki & Craig Usher.
Joining these leather clad iron mongers will be a custom designed cupola furnace shipped from Buffalo, NY for this festival. Be sure to bring your cameras and beware, the iron bug is contagious! A fun, memorable and safe time is guaranteed for all.
