Every year, volunteers in our Foundry Department donate their time to make the donor plaques. In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we met up with Irina to see how she makes the plaques, from pouring each individual letter in wax to casting the whole plaque in bronze.
Our studios are still buzzing from Saturday’s Fire and Water Open House! We had over 1,000 attendees, and our expert faculty gave demonstrations all day. From molten bronze poured into ice in our Foundry to fresh raku firings, this was an Open House for the books!
