The start of "STAN"

Todays visit to Carrie Furnace for a truck load of coke marks the start of constructing "STAN" my sculpture proposal for AlloyPGH 2015. I was excited when given permission to use old coke found on sight at Carrie Furnace since it was originally from Clairton Works. On top of having coke from where my grand father Stan Kwasny worked the sculpture will be displayed in an area where coke traveled and was stored until used in the steel making process.
