Project Description

This 5 inch diameter geode inspired sculpture is made of cast iron, cast silver, and brass. The main iron halves were created by splitting a styrofoam ball in half, burying it in a sand mold, and pouring in molten iron. The styrofoam gets vaporized and the iron cools in the cavity it leaves behind. I added a hammered brass ball to the center, accented by a strip of silver which gets its pattern by pouring molten silver into carved cuttlebone.
