Saugatuk, MI

In July of 2000, I was an Artist In Residence at Ox-Bow, a summer school of the arts affiliated with the Chicago Art Institute.  We did two iron pours in two weeks, the first using a traditional cupola furnace and the second using a furnace we built from wood scavenged from the secluded forest around the camp.  The wooden furnace was part of iron sculptor George Beasley's Residency.  George is internationally renowned for his dramatic iron pour performances.
