National Casting Center
The Division of Sculpture Dimensional Studies at Alfred University
A melting pot of experimental activity, The National Casting Center within the School of Art and Design at Alfred University comprises two comprehensive state of the art facilities: one specializing in Glass Casting and the other in Metal Casting. Courses are taught extensively in both areas from sophomore through to Graduate Level.
The 7000 square foot foundry houses a large wax working room, patina area, walk in sand blasting and an extensive casting floor with a fully electronic overhead bridge crane. Furnaces range from a high temp induction furnace for stainless and Corten steel, a 1000 pound coke fired iron cupola, charcoal fired ancient furnace as well as two gas fired bronze and aluminum crucible furnaces and centrifugal casting.
