Yvonne traveled to Bastrop to check out "Deep in the Heart Art Foundry" – one of the largest bronze foundries in the country. Casting is a labor intensive process that takes a lot of skill and a lot of hands. Owner Clint Howard gave Yvonne a crash course in the process.

From wax pulling to chasing and spruing there are a lot of steps. Oh, did you know that the bronze is melted at nearly 2,000 degrees? Yvonne put on her Kevlar chaps to find out just how hot it gets.
