Beneath The Surface March 27th: Featured Artist Tom Kabat

Our new show opens March 27th from 6-8pm at the Reclaimed Room, 701 Amador Street, SF 94124. ?Please get to know Tom Kabat, one of our featured artists for the show. ?

Inspired by the wide variety of designs seen in antique bicycles, Tom explores the practical and whimsical form of the bicycle using found objects and old bike parts to make ride-able thought pieces.

Riding 4,200 miles across the country with high school friends got me hooked on bicycles, bike commuting and bike touring vacations.? Thinking of bikes as rolling levers and as mobility assist devices frees up a creative view of how a bike can be designed and made.? With a background in environmental and mechanical engineering, I look at bicycle design by combining disparate ideas and pushing boundaries. ?My pieces are crudely made from mostly dumpster rescued materials.? I hope to inspire viewers to start making their own fun bikes.

I share my designs and techniques at: woodenbikes.com

and on: instructables.com/woodenbikes
