Ecology Center | 2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94702
Join Ecology Center for a trunk show featuring Featherboard Studios!
Featherboard Studios is a concept studio that exclusively creates sustainable, eco-friendly, wood products from 100% recycled, local material. As a woodworker, Mel recognize the importance of choosing to use reclaimed wood instead of supporting harmful logging industries. Through Featherboard Studios, Mel aims to create awareness around the types of products purchased, and offers another alternative to commonly purchased kitchenware, like cutting boards, charcuterie servers, and wooden utensils.
After completing her Masters in Fine Arts, Mel committed her art practice to using only recycled materials as to limit her impact on the environment. This led her down the path of sustainable woodworking, specifically utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste. Her boards are unique and one-of-a-kind, in that they’re comprised of recycled fine art frames, weaving the fine art world into craft and design. Each cutting board carries a history with it, and the wood frames that once showcased masterful paintings are now being re-purposed into beautiful kitchenware.Visit Event Website >>
