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.
