Illicit Metalwork

We demonstrate backyard foundry, a process that is much easier then most believe. Ever wonder what metals look like melted? How about a piece of artwork cast out of metal? Imagine a solid brass casting of yourself!

My interest in melting metals started out at a very young age, when middle school came around I immediately jumped into the metalworking class. When I hit high school I learned that our fabrication program didn't offer foundry, but we did modules on that topic. I learned as much as I could and after high school I built my first little forge, then scaled up the operation. Now I'm kickstarting that foundry program in my old high school, as well as inspiring younger audiences to pursue their own dreams. Carpenter by day, metal melting foundry master by night!
