#307 In the foundry: "Moose Flats" con't . . .

As the welds are chased away and blended into the surrounding metal textures, I spend many hours in the foundry.  The metal chasing step in the process is very important to the artist: The integrity of the surface and what was modeled into the clay must flow seamlessly.  A metal chaser is a highly trained technician and must be sensitive to and aware of the sculptors modeling techniques.
