Ben Burtenshaw and Josh Van Dyke in the SSW Foundry!

Our Emerging Artist Resident turned Technical Placement Ben Burtenshaw and another artist from the SSW Emerging Artist Series, Josh Van Dyke, aided our Senior Technician Eden Jolly in an impressive bronze pour last week.

The trio tackled the pour in three consecutive pouring sessions, pouring a set of large moulds for resident artist Fanny Lam Christie, who has been producing public art commissions at SSW for several years.

Below: Fanny Lam Christie’s sand moulds, ready to be cast in bronze; Ben Burtenshaw, Eden Jolly, and Josh Van Dyke preparing to pour the molten bronze; Eden and Josh pouring the last in the first set of bronze moulds; the newly poured sand mould ablaze in the foundry’s sand pit.
