Casting on the beach

beachpour Roddy brought his mobile foundry to the beach at Cellardyke on Friday and we had a great day pouring different metals into beach-sand moulds. We ran two small furnaces so that we could do mixed metal pours. This is me pouring silver, this cast is sterling, the other one in the picture is fine silver. mixpour This is a brass and bronze mixed metal pour. One of the furnaces was bellows operated, so we also had Gordon Lochead from the Silver Studio helping out; and Mary took the photos. mixedmetal You can see both furnaces and just see the bellows on the right in this pic.
