Pewter Stool was made using a primitive form of sand casting by Max Lamb, who has featured in Specification as our designer profile (AJ Specification 02.06). Lamb created a mould by hand on a Cornwall beach, into which he poured molten pewter.

After a 10-minute cooling period, the stool could be excavated. 'What's great about this technique, ' says the designer, 'is the contrast between the sand texture underneath and the smooth polished surface on top'.
