So. Sorry about the poor quality of these photos.
|Some of the vendors and the crowd.|
|Professor Jared Jaffe of Keystone College and some of his RAKU ceramic creations. On the left are ladybug and chicken whistles, while on the right are "RAKU Rocket" teapots. I thought the blue one in the front row resembled one of Lovecraft's Elder Things, while the green one brought to mind a stirge!|
|Pouring the molten iron into the molds.|
|Some of the molds. The one on the right in the second row was made by NEPWC member Laurel.|
|Pouring molten iron into a larger and more complicated mold.|
|"Arts On Fire," literally: after the molten iron was poured, impurities continued to burn off the surface of the iron for several minutes. This image captures a small flame on the left edge of the rightmost mold.|
|Who needs Instagram when you have a low-resolution phone camera with a dirty lens and low-light conditions? This old-timey-looking scene was just across the street from the iron furnace.|
The Arts On Fire Festival continues through tomorrow, June 3 2012, and will run from 11:00 - 5:00.
