This two year old video by Max Lamb has recently exploded online. Max shows us the ancient art of sand casting, where you form a shape in the sand, and then pour molten metal into the cracks. Once it cools, you have yourself a sweet piece of furniture you made yourself. In this case, a pewter stool.

Max had this to say:

„Inspired by a childhood spent on the beaches of Cornwall building castles, boats and tunnels in the sand, I decided to return to my favourite beach at Caerhays on the south coast of Cornwall to produce a stool using a primitive form of sand-casting. Molten pewter was poured into a sand mould sculpted directly into the beach by hand, and once cooled the sand was dug away to reveal a pewter stool.“
