    Todd Sutton, the Waste Sleuth, investigates the recycling of the #6 plastics. His conclusions? PS and EPS are highly recyclable, even in curbside programs, and the demand from manufacturers who use the recycled material to make new products exceeds the current supply.

              Sacrifice and Investment – Bronze Poly Chair A series of unique chairs cast in Bronze using the ‘lost foam’ casting process. The Bronze Poly Chair combines two processes I have explored in previous projects – my Pewter Stool that was cast directly into a hand-carved mould on a sandy beach in Cornwall, and my Polystyrene Chair that is carved from a solid block of low density expanded polystyrene (98% air) and then coated in rubber. Each Bronze Poly Chair is hand-sculpted in polystyrene foam and then buried in sand ready to be sacrificed. Ingots of bronze are heated to over 1100 degrees C and the ‘red hot’ molten metal is poured through the sprue into the sand, consuming the delicate foam and investing the hidden cavity in bronze. Over two hours of waiting and the solid bronze replica of the foam object is broken from the sand. With only one attempt to invest the foam in bronze, every sacrifice is a risk. Successful or not, each casting requires a new foam pattern ensuring no two chairs are the same. By Max Lamb

                Project: Poly Chair Materials: Low density expanded polystyrene and polyurethane rubber Size: 110w x 90d x 60h Description: A process of destruction is used to construct a bombproof chair. A variety of simple tools and a reasonable amount of energy is all that is required. By making furniture by hand the unique is achieved and individual beauty inevitable. The chair takes less than 30 minutes to carve and the soft tactile polyurethane rubber finish takes only 10 minutes to apply. The chair is ready to sit on just 40 minutes from start of production.
