Sneak Peek: the Totem Project, Part 3 – Casting

Here are some photos of the investment casting process, performed this spring by carver David Svenson and his colleague, Rhys Williams.

A positive plaster version of the pole was made so that our friends at FireArt Glass in Portland could take molds from its three parts. They are working on making the molds and experimenting with the kiln-casting process.
