Amazing Cast Aluminum and Wood Furniture

Hilla Shamia, a product designer in Israel, developed an amazing technique for combining the natural and the synthetic. She places blocks of wood inside molds, then pours in molten aluminum. The liquefied metal flows smoothly into every crack, filling it and providing support when it cools. You can see more pictures of her work at Colossal.
