WE ARE IRON
Foundry Tree is an evolving, changing project that addresses the connecting between artists who cast iron, build and run iron furnaces, fabricate, and celebrate these processes. Over 850 participants to date are part of this database.
This connective process began April 1-4, 2009 at the National Conference on Cast Iron Art at SLOSS Furnaces in Birmingham, Alabama.
“FOUNDRY TREE WAS AT:” is a new feature to the Foundry Tree at the bottom of the site. These posts give a backdrop to each event that hosted the Foundry Tree project.
Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, are interested in participating in, hosting, or exhibiting this project. You may also email me your digital image to add to the site.
Due to limitations of the website, the “tree“ only represents a select few of the artists in various iron casting communities from the first years of the website. The more comprehensive displays are the Schools, Institutions, Events and Pours table and Iron USA Map and the Iron Earth Map.
If you had your picture taken for this project, you may be linked to this project through a School, Institution, Event or Pour listed in the menu at the top of the site.
You may search for your last name via the ‘Search’ function at the upper right. If your image is posted, please search your email account for a message from me for information request or email me directly. email@example.com
Thank you very much,
WE ARE IRON
