Just when you thought the list of bike crafters could not get any better…
After some recent publicity a few more artists have emerged and have now been added to the roster. I know, I know, you must be thinking, “can there really be more artists making bike-themed stuff!?” and the answer is…yes!
First, I’m very excited to announce that Matt Cartwright of Cartwright Design will bring his amazing bike sculpture and furniture (see photo). You might not have heard about Matt (unless you’re a loyal reader), but he’s responsible for many well-known bike sculpture installations around Portland including the “bike people” on the roof of River City Bicycles. One of my favorites is this beautiful end table made from an old Schwinn Varsity frame.
I’ve also connected with Amy and James DeRosso. This couple makes bike-inspired stoneware, pots, plates and pottery that is sure to please any cyclist or gardener on your list.
And last but not least we’ll have the wonderful inner tube bracelets of Jane Schmane. Jane is a visual artist and zinester and you might have seen her bracelets at Citybikes.
