The Foundry Iron Pour

Can you say "HOT!"

The Foundry iron pour was a crowd pleaser at Saturday's Pilgrimage as Alabama Art Casting melted scrap iron in a mobile furnace and recycled it into cast-iron art. The art was etched by purchasers of these scratch block molds.

The molds took about 45 minutes to cool and harden.

More Pilgrimage photos can be found
at Selma NOW.

Read more about Pilgrimage
in The Selma Times-Journal.

Be sure and visit the Selma, Ala. Daily Photo tomorrow, March 23,
for its 2nd Anniversary!

I think I would have been part of that 'pleased crowd.' This is fascinating and I would have loved to watch it too.
