I make cast iron sculpture by recycling old steam radiators and re- melting the iron. This tile is about 4" x6".

Why steam radiators would engine blocks or other iron items work ? How do you melt them ?

Radiators are alloyed to be cast thin so they melt a lot easier in a small furnace. If you dump in a whole engine block the furnace will crash cool and that's the end of the firing! We will use an intermittent cupolette to melt the metal.

That's pretty cool . I always wondered how early man fabricated iron tools from iron ore .

If you stumble across a bunch of old radiators, let me know. Maybe they're close enough for me to got get them and recast 'em.
