Magic chair production

This is one of my favorite relaxing videos: since he digs the cast for the stool out of sand, it'll be wrecked by the tide, so the whole workspace is totally temporary and ephemeral but he gets something really cool out of it. It makes me think of the magical feeling of craftsmanship: he goes through this ritual, and at the end he gets to pour some molten metal down, then just wait, and reach into the earth and pull out a completed stool, all at once. Especially watching it in fast forward, it's a very clean, condensed narrative of the experience of artistic creation.
