Stephen Lindsey of urbanproduct recently worked with Monde Ruelle Gallery to transform old hockey sticks into huge snowflake-shaped “Schtick” holiday ornaments at the Jardin Botanique de Montreal. A cabinetmaker by day, Lindsey was intrigued by the hockey stick’s unique shape, so he spent his evenings tracking down old wooden sticks that would otherwise be destined for the landfill and then transformed them into festive pieces of holiday cheer.

In addition to urbanproduct’s works, the Montreal Botanic Gardens will feature the work of five local artists during the months of December and January. The showcase focuses on the re-use, re-cycling, and re-purposing of everyday objects – particularly winter sports gear. Schtick ornaments can be purchased from Urbanproduct for $98.
