Bethlehem Steel, located in Bethlehem Pennsylvania, is home to the second largest steel manufacturer and largest shipbuilding factory in the United States. Since 2003, this center piece within the city has been abandoned and left to decay. The artifacts used in the Lackawanna Collection are original historic foundry molds used at Bethlehem Steel’s Lackawanna Plant. The series was started in collaboration with Artisanal Structures; more collections are in the stages of being created.
