we finally have our next show hung and ready for this next week.
We are showing various foundry molds that were made in the 1920's along with artwork that has been created using these molds as the starting point for the art. Chris Giffin, Emily Stuart and Carolyn Garcia have paid tribute to these pieces by creating one of a kind artwork.
Wooden Foundry molds are getting harder and harder to find. Foundry molds were created by craftsmen/pattern makers pre- Industrial Revolution. The molds were pressed into compact sand where its image was left and then wax was first applied to the cavity and molten iron was poured in making cast iron parts for machines or tools. The old ones are made mostly of wood many are painted with India ink.
Here is a glimpse at some of the pieces which are unique, transformed and ready to hang on any wall! Give us a call or stop into the gallery starting Tuesday, August 3rd!
