Hilla Shamia's Cast Aluminum and Tree Trunk Furniture

Shamia-3

From Colossal:

Shamia-4

"Product designer Hilla Shamia has developed a novel way to meld poured aluminum with irregularly shaped wood pieces to create sleek tables and benches. 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."

Really lovely stuff. And good timing. I looked up where to find her work - and there is a shop in Jaffa Tel Aviv. I am heading there this week!
