08/19/08 80 W, 1 I - + 8 - 10 Pouring Bronze

Here's something you don't see every day. Monday morning we watched my cousin Nick, a sculptor, pour bronze. The metal is heated to around 1,600 degrees, then poured into plaster molds resting in a sand pit. Though (probably) a day in the park for seasoned pros, 'twas a high pucker factor for Yours Truly. Just being in the same room was tough. High UV output as well.
