We’ve teamed up with Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site for an online exhibition of contemporary cast iron sculpture. In addition to being able to view their work in the gallery, you’ll also have an opportunity to see/to hear from each individual artist in a video on this platform describing their work, their practice, what drew them to this crazy process, and how that may have affected them personally.
The title of the exhibition is “I Cast Iron Because...” and you’ll see in the objects themselves and hear in the words of the makers, the answer to that question is extremely diverse and deeply personal.
As for me, I consider myself a modern day alchemist and I cast iron because I find harmony in volatility.
