Ah, metalcasting. Tis like a relaxing picnic on a warm fall day.
Now that’s probably not a statement you ever expected to read. But the Sculpture Trails, Solsberry, Ind., can make it a reality. Don’t believe us? Check out this video and tell us you don’t feel a sense of tranquility you never thought possible in association with the metalcasting industry.
To paraphrase its most recent press release, Sculpture Trails offers to bring its “traveling foundry” to whatever setting you desire. The company will “travel to your high school, art museum, general public workshop or festivals” and give all participants a small block of sand and the tools they need to scratch a design into the cured surface. Next, Sculpture Trails pours aluminum into the block, and voila, the “artist’s” design comes out as a metal casting.
This is more than just a cute idea. It also reminds us that the metalcasting process not only produces many of the engineered components we take for granted in our everyday lives, it can also be a fun craft, a clever way to create and even a relaxing day in the sun.
