On Tuesday November 13 from 10am to 5pm Prof. Licio Isolani’s class will be casting bronze, in the Pratt’s Metal Shop. Art conservators from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, including Ancient Metal conservator Debora Schorsch and her class from NYU Conservation Center will be attending as well as several other conservation scientists. I will be also bringing my Chemistry and Art students to observe the class.
The process of bronze casting has not changed much since the ancient Greek times and for that reason it is interesting from an art conservation perspective. Please feel free to go see the process it is very interesting.
