Last place you visited that inspired you? Bell: “I visited a foundry in Birmingham recently.You walked in and there was a thick black smoky atmosphere. Nothing modern in it, huge old machines, aluminum all over the floor and stacks of casts. All of the employees had blackened faces, thick with soot. It was as if you had stepped back 50 years. Being there made me really want to do some casting. Factory spaces are the best places to get inspired. It’s amazing to see how these places work.”
