Artful Afternoon in Alamance County
Ed and I had a wonderful lunch at the annual "Artful Afternoon", sponsored by the Alamance Arts Council. Ed was the speaker for the luncheon and talked about Carolina Bronze, his fine art bronze casting foundry. I was his humble technical assistant. Along with his talk, he showed a power point presentation with many visual images to illustrate his points. The luncheon was held at the Alamance Country Club and was beautifully decorated with red and white tables, featuring red tulips as a centerpiece. The sold out crowd was much bigger than we had anticipated, but very receptive to his speech. The bronze casting process is very intricate and the foundry has some new high tech equipment that offers artists many advantages over older techniques. Many in the audience had questions afterwards. To learn more about the foundry and the casting process go to his website, Carolina Bronze Sculpture .
