About the Community Iron Pour

"The Iron Pour is one of the most amazing things I've ever witnessed. It's a kinetic experience of art and power."
Crested Butte Community Member, Ian Wrisley
During the first week of October, join the Art Studio for our annual Community Collaborative Iron Pour in Crested Butte. The Pour takes place on the evening of Thursday, October 4, 2018.  For the weeks leading up to the pour, The Art Studio provides artists, interns, university students, and community members (including kids!) the opportunity to work on pieces to cast at the pour! See below for more information on how to get involved.

For Community Members We provide many Scratch Block Carving Events where you can sculpt a design in your own block to be fired at the pour.
For Artists click here!  We offer a week-long residency with daily workshops and discussions and a lot of time for creating and sculpting.
For University Students We offer a handful of internships where you can earn credit for your work. Check back for details.

Everyone is welcome to this unique gathering!


Make your own iron sculpture by carving a design in a pre-made sand block that will be filled with molten iron on Pour Day.
