Bronze Pour
Mon, May 20, 2019, 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm

 

The Spring Foundry class will be having their semiannual Bronze Pour on Monday, May 20, 2019 at the UCSC Foundry (located behind the Media Theater/at 100 Foundry Rd.) We have a lot of pieces to pour, so we'll probably be pouring bronze approximately at:  2:30, 3:30, and 4:30. (Times subject to slight changes.) 

This is open to the public for viewing at a safe distance. The Bronze will be heated to 2100 degrees and poured from the crucible at a glowing-orange molten state into the investment molds that have been meticulously prepared by the students over the previous 7 weeks. At the end of the pour, they will get to break open their molds and see their pieces finally realized in Bronze.
