What a great first class we had last night!! It's a short course, 4 classes to get an overview of the lost wax process. What a talented crew, from experienced metalsmith to beginner. They cranked out the textured bands! Can't wait to cast these with them next week and to begin the finishing process.

Isn’t it mesmerizing watching the vent suck up every last bit of that smoke?! 🤤

Just a friendly reminder to all my fellow smiths to invest in safe studio practices like keeping your air healthy.

This system is one of the things people ask me about most. This is the Quatro Gold Vault and I bought it from ottofrei1930 and my only regret is not having this years ago.

Be smart, be safe, and be healthy as you do your creative thing. 😘
