Sodium Silicate Sand Molding with CO2
Harvey Hood

Harvey Hood will demonstrate the possibilities and complexities inherent in the sodium silicate sand molding process using CO2.

“For me, mould-making is not just a technical process but a methodological journey. In the creative act everything is in flux, the choice of materials, the conceptual idea, the purpose of the sculpture and the way it is made. Making the positive object and creating the negative mould exposes both sides of the brain to maximum creativity.” Sand Casting Symposium – 2006
