Pour Molten Metal Over Wood, And You Can Make Some Seriously Kicka** Furniture

Here’s some totally awesome table and chairs you probably wouldn’t ever see in a furniture store.

Artist Hilla Shamia has developed a unique process that involves pouring molten metal over carved tree trunks, resulting in some incredibly cool furniture!

The process preserves that natural form of the tree trunk while still allowing the molten aluminum to flow into the crevices of the wood, slightly burning the area where the two materials meet.
