Spring skateboard

The handmade skate deck is made from transparent resin and fiberglass filled with dried spring flowers. Sunflowers and other brightly coloured flora are all hand-picked by the artist and dried out in silicone sand, then sprayed with lacca. The board is designed and reinforced to be ridden.
