Live Molten Metal was a performance by the Iron Guild at The Steelyard on Halloween, 2008. Eve + Bowie, along with their student Jonathan from Industrual Casting Techniques for the Kitchen, fabricated a mold made entirely of candy. The cavities were made with two gloves. The Iron Guild poured molten iron into the candy glove mold during their performance.

The Iron Guild utilizes both traditional and new casting methods. During their performances they often focus on the spectacle of the iron casting process, experimenting with various techniques -- understanding the traditional while exploring new ideas.
