GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Colorado Mesa University sculpture students are putting their studies to practice with 3000 degree liquid iron.
3-D sculpture classes, professors and local artists joined together for the semester iron pour.
Students poured 3,000 lbs of liquid iron into pre-constructed molds.
"I like it because of its permanence," said Nick Valpanbo, a CMU student. "Once you cast something, it's going to be here forever."
The iron is heated to almost 3,000 degrees in a cupola and then students ladled it into their molds.
The project used entirely recycled iron and some of it came from homes that CMU bought around campus.
