IRON R copy.jpg

The IRON-R project, initiated and lead by artist and lecturer (CIT/CCAD) James L. Hayes, presented a rare opportunity for artists to take part in every step of the near-obsolete cast-iron process. The six-day intensive project guided the artists through each step of the cast-iron process from sand-mould casting to charging the cupola and pouring the molten metal, all within the dynamic environment of the National Sculpture Factory. The project was lead by world-leading cast-iron artists including Matt O’Toole (Savannah College Art and Design), Andy Griffiths (Carmarthen College) and James L Hayes (CIT/CCAD).
