'Ore and Ingot' is a Bristol based travelling foundry, started by Jo Lathwood and David Snoo Wilson in 2012. Uniquely at the heart of our studio practice is the beautiful alchemy of melting metal. We teach and share metal casting skills, in the format of running short courses, taking commissions and traveling with our portable foundry.
Our aim is to create a hub that will draw in local artists and to share skills that are frequently overlooked by art institutions. We are interested in using the foundry to engage the wider community whilst preserving traditional arts in contemporary practice.
