Iwate is famous for Nanbu ironware.
This is a project that introduces the new charm of foundry art as a contemporary art.
The first installment of the Casting Art Project is a unique production activity in which a blast furnace is freely created to suit the environment, and as an outdoor performance, artwork is created by pouring iron into various natural materials such as stone and bamboo. We would like to introduce Mr. George Beasley, a world-famous foundry artist.
