For the Environmental Foundry Course, Senior Sculpture Student , Nina Chesakov recieved an Alfred Research Grant for Undergraduate Students (argus) to research and build a vegetable oil furnace fired by recyled veggie oil from the campus cafe. Using half of an old 55 gal drum lined with hand made refractory she melted and cast copper and bronze into clay molds.
