Many artists maintain urban workplaces. Others opt for studios out in the boondocks far away from the crowds. Kevin Eichner, a sculptor and professor at Central Carolina Community College in Siler City, prefers the quiet lifestyle. Eichner, an East Carolina University graduate, is the art director at the Moncure Museum of Art in Moncure. Hyman describes a day at the artists' foundry where iron is melted and poured into the sculptors' molds. After cooling, the sculptures are broken from the molds.
