DEEP CRAFT ATELIER 2

March 18-20, 2016

StoreFrontLab is pleased to welcome the return of Deep Craft Atelier, the art installation/social sculpture by Scott Constable which launched StoreFrontLab in 2012. Deep Craft Atelier 2 (DCA2) will take the form of a pop-up board shop, featuring a new line of hand-crafted skateboards designed and made by Constable, along with a collection of other surf-themed products.

For his one-of-a-kind skateboards, Constable milled, air-dried and shaped veneers from native California hardwoods, then invited artists to create graphics that are burned into the wood like scrimshaw.  The artists include Jim ChristensenAlika CooperBradford DeCaussin, Alicia Dyche, Kathleen Henderson, Lawrence Labianca, and Jeanne Lorenz.

DCA2's collection evokes memories (or are they dreams?) of sun-bleached days at the coast:
—Hand-shaped paipo bodyboards and hand planes by Lawrence LaBianca
—Hand-sewn beach gear by clothing designer Gabriel Russo
—Custom sling bags by Susan Hoff
—Jewelry by Tide and Tied
—Beach totes by Yvonne Mouser
—Hand-sewn neckties by Jim Christensen
—Seascapes and jewelry by Juvalee Kingaloo
—Skate cruiser by Gone Studio
