85% recycled steel. It has a built in kiln for melting aluminum cans and scrap, which we pour into sand molds as shown in the following images.

Dragon Smelter 2010

We had 2 successful large casting events and another one that was partially successful at BM in 2010, publicly casting 7 large pieces out of the Dragon Smelter. Below are images of two of them. Both are wall relief sculpture, about 14 x 17 inches, and made from about 200 cans as well as some scrap aluminum.
