At Somerset Sculpture and Foundry, owner Digby Veevers-Carter and independent contractor Peter Dransfield prepare to remove molten bronze from the furnace. The bronze will then be poured into a mold for a nude sculpture. “The alchemy of bronze casting is a 5,000-year-old art that really hasn’t changed much,” says sculptor/furniture designer David Moser. “The furnace has made it more effective, but you still have to melt down the bronze to a liquid form and pour it into a receptor. You still have to make that sacrificial sculpture first.”
