Beach sand casting

I’ve been busy casting the past two weeks as college has organized two bronze pours as part of a medal competition. Last week I cast the vessel that I plan to develop in silver with my silver bursary.

This is cast in beach sand from Cellardyke with some Crail clay mixed in.


I’ve also had several sessions to get a mesh of the vessel captured so that I can prototype different profiles for the vessel that still fit with the original. This remains a work in progress

The shape of the original vessel, which is Damascus steel, is informed from the tools, the process and the material used to create it.
