 💡  The Foundry Studio at the Eugeniusz Geppart Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, run by Michał Staszczak, Paweł Czekański and Hubert Bujak, has been active for many years. Workshops on creating cast metal sculptures are organized on a regular basis, during which works are made using traditional and experimental techniques. Cast iron is melted during spectacular demonstrations in open-air furnaces constructed at the Wrocław Academy (including a tilting furnace). Visiting artists, experts in the field of artistic metal casting, are invited to the studio. The studio hosts many events as part of the Festival of High Temperatures.

💥  Some of the works were also presented at the exhibition accompanying the ninth International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art in Berlin (September 2022).
