“SHAKEOUT: From Streets to Galleries,” page 56
“Cast manhole and utility covers have inspired artists like Bobbi Mastrangelo and Kim Christiansen to create works of art that have been on display in galleries around the country.”
This is the Fiber Arts creation that Shannon Wetzel chose for The Shakeout page of Modern Casting Magazine. The various water covers were printed with deep embossment on my hand made paper circles. They were secured to metallic gauze which was stretched over the wooden frame of a canvas back painted black. Using this technique makes the little watercovers appear to “Float.”
Kim Christiansen enhances his rubbings with colorful additions. You can view more of his works at www.kimchristiansen.com.

We are proud to be included in this magazine along with other “hot” topics (like pouring molten metal). If you have photos of foundry scenes or foundry topics to share, please let me know in a blog comment.
