I have been invited to build a new Fire Iron Earthwork at Spoeri Sculpture Park in Italy. It will be a variation of the 'Volcano Furance' in Pedvale Sculpture Park in Latvia. A new furnace will be built in collaboration with Blacksmith Andreas Glaser in Basel Switzerland for the Earthwork. The Fire Iron Earthwork will be operated for the annual opening of the Sculpture Park over Easter 2015 accompanied with a unique sound work by Paul Higham and the 'Flight of the Phoenix' performance by Cynthia Handel, Jenny Hager and Suzanne Roewer.
Whilst in Latvia the Volcano Furnace Earthwork was scanned on location to create a 3d model, I have since had it produced as a rapid prototype model which is now available for purchase in a variety of cast metals including IRON, BRONZE and STAINLESS STEEL. This is an opportunity to purchase a limited edition artwork. Please see the side button to order and select your options.
By making a purchase you will be supporting the next build in Italy, funds will help support artists, pay, accommodation and travel for assistants, purchasing materials and the shipping of equipment.
