Molten Metal Monster Mayhem

photo by jack lenk Friday night is the 5th Annual Iron Pour at the Steel Yard (rain date Saturday). Jack-o-lanterns, skull-type things, people in asbestos space suits lurching about, and ceramic bowls for sale.

Each year, the Steel Yard teams up with the Iron Guild to demonstrate the industrial arts in an exciting, accessible way. Our annual Iron Pour is a luminous spectacle in celebration of the fall season here in Providence. This year’s performance promises to be in keeping with the dramatic displays of the past with a monster theme.

Our incredible displays of molten metal in the past have included: liquid iron being poured into a huge, hand-carved wooden skull and casting the insides of pumpkins while a giant steel one was brought to life. Like those of the past, the 2010 Iron Pour is sure to be a sight to see during this Halloween weekend.

Food and drink vendors, and music by Empty House Cooperative. It’s hard to explain this event, go check out the video at the website. Cool photos of past pours at the New England Journal of Aesthetic Research.
