Ring dem bells - creating a new bell for the Exploratorium's new home

I am sure that almost everybody in the Bay Area knews that the Exploratorium reopened in a magnificent new building this week. The place is paced with people so it's a lot easier to see this via the Internet - at least, until the opening crowds thin out.

Artist Nick Diphillipo has been designing and casting bells and other objects for over thirty years. He teaches bell making at The Crucible in Oakland, California, as well as other foundry-related subjects.

Marvelous little video! Thanks for finding that. I have done a very small metal casting in my life (jewelry) and, he's right, it's amazingly intense and involving.
