The piece has been removed from the mold and is cooling. In the shadows and at the top, the sprues can been seen and will be removed.
 

Chester is packing the mold with oil-soaked sand while Josh Rhoads is filling the forge with aluminum cans.

A board has already been placed in the center of the mold and the foam artwork has been placed on the board, face up. After this side of the mold has been packed with sand, it will be flipped and the other side will be filled with sand then sprue holes will be created.

Here, Chester is pouring melted aluminum into the mold,
The mold has been cooled awhile and Chester has removed the outside of the mold. As the sand cools, Chester removes it in layers. The spures are visible sticking up out of the sand.
After the pour, chuncks of waster material must be removed from the bottom of the crucible.

In a world where our resources need to be valued, one way this artiest has done such things is with melting down aluminum and turning it into something outside of that cycle into art that will last generations ... and beyond... 

Chester L. Lux  AKA (Trever Mopletoplehead) has evolved from many different mediums, such as clay, wood, and even leather work. Chester has found the rewards of working with aluminum to be diverse as well as challenging. To view one of his pieces in person, will set a new standard for the word recycled .
