Ore and Ingot is a Bristol based travelling foundry, started by Jo Lathwood (Spike Island studio holder) and David Snoo Wilson (Foundry technician at RCA, London) in 2012. Uniquely at the heart of their studio practice is the beautiful alchemy of melting metal. They teach and share metal casting skills in the format of leading short courses, taking commissions and traveling with their portable foundry.

Their aim is to create a hub that will draw in local artists and to share skills that are frequently overlooked by art institutions. They are interested in using the foundry to engage the wider community whilst preserving traditional arts in contemporary practice.
