What is Cuttlefish Casting?
Cuttlefish casting is a fun and quick way to create a design out of cooled metal.
This method of casting pendants using molten metal and cuttlefish bone has been used for years. A design is hand carved into cuttlefish bone, which can withstand high temperatures. Metal is then heated into a molten state and poured into the cast, leaving you with a 3D model of your cast once the metal has cooled and hardened.
Your instructors will be Max and Eden Jolly who has been developing his expertise with furnaces and casting molten metal since 1992. He works with a variety of metals and uses age old traditional methods and materials for both moulds and casting.
