Join us just after sunset on the bluff to watch our staff melt down old iron radiators and cast
works of art. If you'd like to contribute an artwork of your own, you can buy a mold for a tile or bowl

the tiles and bowls have cooled, you'll be able to pick them up from the Metal Museum the following week.
