A crucible of molten bronze ready to be poured. The molten bronze is about 2000°F (1093°C). Note that I was shooting through a protective grid.

to pick it up with my hands. Ouch !

The molten bronze makes a wonderful, even if too hot, subject. You caught its glow in a fine picture that even has detail in the darker parts of the picture. Expertly shot.

hot, hot, hot. the liquid and your picture...
9 Aug 2012 3:56pm
Hot, hot, hot ! Perfect for a barbecue ! :-)
I like the graphism here Steve.

Hi Steve - Tremendous piece here...And you are so right, casting is no easy task. Your reference to Upton Ethelbaugh (Greyshoes) as I learned, was very intriguiing and I found myself dancing joyfully through your images of the Indian Art Fare in 2010 and several of your images around that time. Your work is so phenomenally graceful and full of tribute to American Culture..I mean the REAL Americans. I want to definitely compliment you on your wonderful work and tribute to the true Native culture and arts which are so summarily ignored by most.
