Inside The Kiln: Lost Wax

Erwin Timmers checks out the lost wax firing
Debra Ruzinsky's "Introduction to Lost Wax Casting" class started off with great success - the art works will continue firing and annealing in the kiln until Wednesday. Shown here is Erwin Timmers as he checks on the work to ensure the integrity of the plaster casts and the glass levels in each mold during the process. Although the mathematics to determine of the amount of glass needed to fill the molds were practiced - some were more precise in their calculations than others.
