Setting up shop on a beach in Cornwall, furniture maker Max Lamb meticulously freehands a mold in the sand from which he casts a rather modern-looking hexagonal stool from pewter heated over a camp fire. [via reddit]

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.
