Haroshi makes these odd art pieces recycling old used skateboards. The essential style is the wooden mosaic; skateboards may seem like they’re all in the same shape, but actually, their structure varies according to the factory, brand and popular skaters’ signature models.

With his experience and almost crazy knowledge of skateboards, Haroshi can differentiate from thousands of used deck stocks, which deck fits with which when stacked.

After the decks are chosen and stacked, they are cut, shaven, and polished with his favorite tools. By coincidence, this creative style of his is similar to the way traditional wooden Japanese Great Buddhas are built. 90% of Buddha statues in Japan are carved from wood, and made using the method of wooden mosaic; to save the expense of materials, and also to minimize the weight of the statue.

Haroshi says:

I believe that if the small things we do can connect to sustainability then we’re doing something right. I’m satisfied in my effort when people look at products and start thinking of ways to recycle.
