Casting to the Future

Julie and I have been facing a series of distractions to our artwork; there were other projects in the works that were preventing us from focusing on anything new.

That looks like its past us now.

I bought a book a ways back on creating a furnace to melt brass, and another book on sand casting. I've got projects already lined up for practice, a couple of belt buckles, maybe a small rocket or two, and then we have a potential commission piece from an old friend of the family.

I need to break out the books, and re-read them cover-to-cover, and then start scrounging parts, and then fabricate anything that I can't find.

What I Want

I want a kiln big enough to make one of these.
