Dawny has developed a foundry technique for exploring molten metal as a free-form process in its own right.  This medium gives her no choice but to work quickly and intuitively, as the moment the liquid leaves the crucible it quickly begins to solidify.

There is only a certain amount of control she can hope to gain over this mesmerizing silvery medium.  Its intense heat, the roar of the furnace and the pounding of her heart all add to the often unpredictable but totally captivating experience of creating this type of sculpture.

By salvaging and recycling metals, she is developing a visual vocabulary that flows between abstract, figurative and botanical forms, which compose a dialogue commenting on sustainability from a creative viewpoint, within an emotional and environmental context.
