Casting metal is a 6,000-year-old process still used in both manufacturing and fine art. The founder melts metal in a crucible, pours the liquid metal into a mold, then removes the mold material or the casting once the metal has cooled and solidified. The most common metals used in fine art are aluminum, bronze and cast iron. In The Crucible’s entry-level foundry classes, you will learn the chemistry and basic steps that go into making a piece of cast metal, while advanced classes further explore the intricacies of casting and metal finishing.
