Molten Metal Glows at 3rd Annual GoggleWorks Iron Pour

GoggleWorks and Albright College partnered once again for the 3rd annual Spring Iron Pour, held Saturday night outside the GoogleWorks. 2,000 pounds of reclaimed scrap iron was heated to 3,000 degrees for the event and poured into molds.

Leading the Iron Pour, and associated workshop, was GoggleWorks sculptor Tripp Jarvis. Jarvis currently exhibits nationally and internationally and is an alumni artist at Liberty Arts Studio and Foundry in Durham, NC.

In addition to the Iron Pour, the night also included a fire performance by Whirled Dreams, live music by Grexin, fire roasted food by Dundore & Heister, and Belly: Kitchen & Drinkery.

Prior to the Iron Pour, a casting workshop was held to review the process of cupola iron casting and the materials needed. Using oil based clay as the primary pattern material, participants created their own Mandala relief pattern and then used resin bonded sand molds to create a sculpture cast.
