This is a teaser photo of preparations for the iron pour that Steve and I ran at the weekend. It is the inside of a sand mould for an iron beaker vessel. I have put a piece of copper alloy from my beach combing into the mould to see what happens.
I now know what happened, but you will have to wait….
The pour was a great success thanks to George Beasley, Steve, Eden and the rest of the team at SSW. Thanks also to Charles Clark for the mould boxes.
I started making up some sand moulds today. They are not very photogenic so this is a photo of the spot where I collect sand to use. I like this spot as the sand is quite coarse and is under the sea twice a day as the tide comes in.
I caught the last of the afternoon sun to take photos of some of my bowls which are heading to the Fisher Gallery in Pittenweem which re-opens April 1st http://www.fishergallery.co.uk. These are bronze, silver and brass pieces.
I’ll also show some of my small Damascus steel spoons.
