up-cycled bicycle parts sugar skull



Sorry, this item has sold.

All of my reclaimed bike parts come from scouring the recycling bin my local bicycle shop. I love to imagine that the coaster that holds my afternoon tea could have been made from the cog recycled from the bike of the cafe barista who served me my morning coffee. Embedded in these pieces are the miles and miles that this bike piece saw, it's part of its essence --- all the rides that the person took --- back and forth to work, out to Walden Pond, climbing mountains to raise money for charity--- all these different rides, all these human moments. Saturated in these pieces is the energy of all that movement, and its life continues, rooted in movement, and still living in an altered way.

These intricate and edgy sugar skulls are inspired by by the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Each custom skill is created from reclaimed bike chain, bicycle cogs, hardware and other found objects that have been imbedded in non-toxic resin. Each skull is made to order (the ones pictured are also available) and can be customized to include your favorite colors, hardware pieces and bicycle parts.
