Chris Chappell out of Louisville, KY put together a collection of glass skateboard deck reproductions based on his fondest memories of skateboarding in the 80’s for an art show called Glassics. Although they have the same concave and shapes as the originals, they are purely meant to be wall hangers. The decks themselves are typically a 1/4 inch thick to save weight, although he has dine some that match the traditional thickness of a 7 ply deck. The graphics are painted and then fused into the glass at 1400 degrees. Some of them have lights behind them as well. These works are not for sale, but he does have a website where you can commission a reproduction of your own design. If you’re keeping track, this is the second post about glass skateboards.
The Psycho Stick really lends itself well to this application, and the lights make it pop even more.
