MassArt Halloween Iron Pour 2008, Boston, MA

Pat O'dea took this photo of molen iron hitting the "stump" - a 28" diameter chunk of tree soaked with a hose so that when the 3000˚ iron hits it, it'll just jump right back up in a million little sparks. It's like you are in the center of an exploding firework. Click on the photo to see the rest of Pat's photos from the night.

I am the faculty advisor for the students who build and operate the iron furnaces. This event happened last night, and couldn't have been done without the help of Marjee Levine! Yay Marjee! Marjee will be teaching an evening course next semester, Wednesdays, 6 - 10 PM on iron cupola (a small blast furnace) design, construction, and operation. Sign Up!!

The students, led by Shayla MacDonald are:

Kim Ayotte
Nat Bearg
John Booth
Andy Campbell
Stephen Coutts
Nick Farnham
Danielle Fearon
