Well III by TOM JOYCE
This photographic series investigates microstructures inherent in iron, the raw material I use to forge sculpture. A distinct dendritic pattern, as unique as a human fingerprint, develops when molten iron slowly cools inside massive ingot molds during the first phase of its manufacture. The strength of the material is determined at the moment of its birth and, in essence, it’s “genetic code” is reflected in the re-crystallization recorded in these images of iron and steel ingots colored by impurities that rise and settle on its surface.
