Shidoni Foundry

sights / Parks & gardens

Lonely Planet review

Five miles north of Santa Fe in Tesuque, Shidoni has an 8-acre grassy sculpture garden, a great place for a picnic or for the kids to run around among some funky artwork. There's also an indoor gallery and an on-site glassblowing studio. Every Saturday you can watch 2000°F molten bronze being poured into ceramic shell molds, one of several steps in the complex lost-wax casting technique ($2).
