Internet Shows and Competitions

I built and operate a small, one-man aluminum foundry for personal use.  I have done tree-trunk sized wood scultures as fund raisers for medical charities.  I am interested in low-technology casting.  Sculptures are inspired by my youth in Pittsburgh, traditional Catholic carvers of saints, and cargo cult ideas.
