Israeli designer Hilla Shamia uniquely joins the materials of aluminum and wood in this Wood Casting series. Using a whole tree trunk, Shamia pours molten aluminum directly onto the wood, which burns the surface and darkens the wood.
Wood iPad stand- available in black walnut or maple/elm. Everett Block and his sons rescue imperfect pieces of Oregon hardwood, transforming them into modern device furniture. i love that its local here in Oregon :)~ jenna
Hilla Samia combines cast aluminum and wood to make these stunning hybrid designs. Aluminum seeps into every crevice, highlighting imperfections in the wood. I find the charred wood (from hot metal touching its surface) the most beautiful detail.
