Below is a video of the successful Bronze pour for the form of Venus. The furnace was so bright when opened to get the crucible out, the camera couldn’t take it in so has a blue tint for part of the video. I really enjoy the process of pouring bronze and the incredible colour it goes as it changes state from liquid to solid. The mould did crack under the heat and pressure of the bronze but that was expected as the mould expanded and contracted. This will create positive fissures on the surfaces of the bronze which can be cleaning up. The bronze appeared to fill the mould to the top without any major problems.
