Pouring Bronze 1, originally uploaded by dagnyg.
We went on a tour of a bronze statue foundry in Prescott Valley, Az this morning. In this photo a foundry worker is pouring molten bronze at 2150 degrees F into a mold. The tour was interesting, there are many steps between the sculptors clay model and the finished metal statue. More photos here, come and see.
The foundry web site is here.
