PostSubject: QUIET COLLECTIVE   Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:38 pm

Okay so this has been a brainchild of mine for probably over a year now. My own one-of, sculpture and painting oriented obstacles, as well as a blog serving as a place for others to sell their own one-of pieces. There is more to read about it on the blog here: http://quietfb.blogspot.com/
It would be my hope that others take advantage of this, but I'm guessing I'll probably just be selling my stuff on here haha.

Anyways, here is the first object:



more photos on the blog! I have two more done and ready for posting shortly.

Looks sick! Pretty rare to find someone who is into hand sculpting their own projects, etc.

But why all the hate? It's creative. It may not look like something that popped out of the hands of Mike Schneider or Elias Assmuth, but it's awesome!

Keep doing what you're doing, lookin' good!

yeah for sure, wasn't really sure how much to make it. Email format makes haggling easy tongue

looks interesting, but can you tell me how this is different than just buying a much cheaper, smoother, and more even ledge from another company like level ledges or blackriver? i get that it's supposed to be art or something but i can't help but notice it's lacking a bit in usability and price when compared to the competition. that said, best of luck with your company.

I guess its different because you're getting something theres only one of? If you don't get it you don't get it haha. Its unique looking I guess, but from a fully functional standpoint, you aren't getting that funky coping anywhere else I guarantee. There is also the shape of the ledge and small nuances that would allow for more options than just a straight ledge. I buy brr ramps and think that if you have a limited budget for your park or are looking for one thing you want to use all the time and be perfect for getting endless hard tricks on, then you should buy brr ramps. This is more geared towards people who probably already have their fair share of perfectly good obstacles looking for something with a little change of pace. I've been fingerboarding more than half my life, i have plenty of good ledges, but I would definitely be stoked to buy a unique ledge with a painting on it or something.

I still can't wrap my mind around how to sesh this thing.....

Price seems a little steep but the floral coping itself is worth the asking price.

I really dig this idea, man. The idea of an obstacle marketplace for handmade stuff is really cool! Could branch out into a handmade, one-of-a-kind FB marketplace. Keep it up, for sure dude!

Thanks man! Yeah thats totally the idea! not just for obstacles, anything fingerboard related, or even like relics of stuff like an empty bottle of resin from timo or something haha, or art of fingerboarders like prints of their paintings or albums. I just see SO much talent in making and craftsmanship in fingerboarding and less artistic influence and expressionism than we have the potential for. I want illustrations and architectural aesthetic to play a comparable role in my obstacles to music in a video I guess.

After seing the video I finally understood how it was suposed to be used.
Over all, I like the idea of one of a kind product and re-used materials ... but I wouldn't pay anything for one obtacle like this .
I know you are trying to be artistic and you kinda did it : I like the unusual shape... that shape of obstacle could actually work... but you glued just a bunch of things you found and it just doesn't look good ! If you had made an wooden base instead of that granite it would have some style and could look like a professional ramp. Also it would reduce some weight!

The look of the ramp is REALLY important , because that's what makes people buy it in first place... When you see a deck with an awesome graphic, even if you never tried the brand, you feel like you have to buy it. The same happens with this . Not impressed , sorry.
Hope I made my point!
