As “a builder, a fixer, and a do-it-myselfer”, Ariele Alasko of Brooklyn to West [1]enjoys big tools, old wood, good pasta, and finding primo building material in the dumpster. Having moved to New York from California for art school in sculpture, she immediately fell in love with the grungy side of Brooklyn. Transitioning from sculpture [2] to working with reclaimed material, she moved out of tracking sawdust through her apartment in to a large studio where she could develop her carpentry. Playing with the colors and textures of salvaged wood, Alasko creates beautiful geometric patterns in her tabletops and detailed pieces of furniture. Giving scraps a second chance, she fashions eco-friendly and attractive appointments that have come a long way from the trash heap [3].
