AnthillArt.com - Ant Colony Castings

I make casts of ant colonies using molten aluminum to fill the tunnels and chambers of the nest. The result is an amazing sculpture showing the intricate detail of the nest architecture. The cast is then mounted for display on a wood base. Each display has a stainless steel plaque mounted on the base with information on the cast and a unique cast number. These make perfect displays for a home or as an educational piece for teachers and professors to display in a science classroom or laboratory.

A fire ant colony cast that I made is on display at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago as part of a new exhibit called Numbers in Nature. The cast is one of the best that I've ever done, so be sure to check it out if you're ever in the Chicago area. You can visit their website if you need directions or other information.
