? More on the ceramic bell casting method at Arcosanti: here, the Silt-Cast bells have been removed from the silt counter, and are drying on the deck of the Ceramics Apse. They must reach a stage of hardness where the artists can handle them without malforming them.

? Here, Ceramics Manager Edward Werman performs Quality Control, ensuring that the bells are uniform in size and thickness.

? Pressing a hole into the top of the bell prepares them to be hung. And then, a light dusting with talc provides a coating for the Silt-Cast bells, acting as a color-contrast to the carving.

Of course, the bells are not complete at this point. As such, we will continue our report on the Silt-Cast process … in the anticipated past.
