Max Lamb, ‘Pewter Stool’, 2014, Johnson Trading Gallery

About Max Lamb

British designer Max Lamb has travelled to China, Australia, the Catskills in New York, and closer to home—the beaches of Cornwall, England—to source materials for his one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Whether forging chairs from solid Chinese granite, crafting tables from sheets of steel, or casting pewter stools in sand, in an age-old technique that entails digging into the beach and filling it with molten metal, Lamb’s methods are often labor-intensive and deeply entwined with his materials. Other works have incorporated hand-crafted plaster carved with stonemasonry tools, manmade marble, bronze, aluminum, and dowel.

British, b. 1980, Cornwall, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
