General

Through the comments in our online collections the following was stated about the photos:

This was not at Jim Barton Studios. That is blatantly false. I was head of the Sand Foundry and I cast this piece in Aluminum at the Johnson Atelier, Princeton, New Jersey by Rory Mahon (published 2013-12-19)
