A Syracuse University art and science experiment pouring molten lava on a 6-inch thick slab of ice. Lava pour took place using the #700 gas fired tilt furnace operated by the SU Sculpture Program. This 610-pound pour was the most successful to date in terms of material consistency, volume, duration of pour, viscosity, duration of flow, structure of flow, etc. This pour was conducted for Professor Ben Edwards, Dickinson College Earth Sciences Department.
