The "Lingo" series, skates made out of recycled wood

Circle Factory is taking care of different projects and I really do not know what to choose as my favourite. Because I like them all: bowls, the Lingo skateboard series, the sculptures and the great decorative t-shirt designs. The pictures below are making part of a bigger series of skateboard designs made out of recycled wood parts.
The artist George Peterson is working in woode since 1992 when he started to carve fine products and original art. This time, he gathered together relics of old skateboards: parts that were used and thrown away. I think these
pictures reveal an incredible beauty and his art reminds me of what I have seen at the Quai Branly Museum: African and Oceanian art. The “Lingo” series by George Peterson is currently being shown at Altered Space Gallery in Venice Beach, CA. Via here.
