Wooden Castings Forms become Art -- a benefit for the Sacramento Tree Foundation's urban wood recycling and reuse program. These images depict some of the artists, artworks and materials which are part of this project.

The background: A foundry that was in operation for years at McClellan Air Force Base ceased operation and four pallets of the wooden forms that were used for the forms to cast metal parts - pipes, valves, grate covers, water fountains, industrial and municipal parts of all kinds - were donated to the Tree Foundation with the aim of repurposing them into art works.
