Amanda Partridge Nordin is originally from North Carolina. She's been in Detroit for 17 years as an artist, teacher, mentor, and art collaborator. Focused on metal sculpting, Amanda has a passion for iron casting and bringing opportunities to the community.
In her presentation, Amanda explains that her goal is to bring a network of cast iron artists together. She says it takes a team to run a furnace but linking Detroit with its roots and providing individuals interested with opportunities will keep the ancient art alive.
