SIU students to turn iron into sculptures

CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

If you'd like to watch a hunk of metal become a sculpture, don't miss the iron pour on Saturday, Nov. 7 in Carbondale.  Art students at Southern Illinois University's School of Art and Design invite the public to watch the fascinating transformation.  The pour will start around noon, but students will begin feeding the furnace at 9 a.m.  The pour will last about three hours.  The SIU Foundry is on West Pleasant Hill Road, across from the Evergreen Terrace Apartments.  SIU is the only university program in the country that offers a master of fine arts degree in blacksmithing.  For more information, contact Carey Netherton at cnetherton@siu.edu.
