Be at the Bee and Thistle Inn and Spa Saturday

Internationally acclaimed sculptor Andrew DeVries, whose studio is in Lenox, Mass., will be at the Bee and Thistle Inn and Spa June 6 to demonstrate a bronze pouring as he casts a sculpture using the ancient art of the “lost wax” process.
The event is from 1 to 4 p.m. at 100 Lyme St., Old Lyme.
Oragnizers said DeVries' demonstrations involve heating about 65 lbs. of metal in a small furnace for 45 minutes to an hour until molten.
He then pours the bronze into a prepared mold, which is an incredible sight.
The event is open to the public free of charge.
DeVries also will unveil his latest commission, which is a ¾ life-size bronze entitled "Innocence." The new work is one of "the most technically challenging figures that the artist has ever done," organizers said.
