Yes! We use old, scratched up random vinyl records from our collection to create our art. Some of our designs cut through the center where the label is and others we put our own label over the old label to make the design “POP”
Each vinyl we carve is individually unique as you are!
Not always, some of our designs are carved on random old vinyls and for more customized pieces we carve into the artists original vinyl record. We may also use the original album cover artwork in a larger frame along with the original carved vinyl. We always make sure to specify on our listings so you know if the vinyl is original.
These one-of-a-kind pieces we currently only sell at our shows. We will also make them for you by request and ship out. Keep an eye out for when we start offering "Original carved albums and artwork on our website"
And don’t worry vinyl enthusiasts, we use scratched up, damaged and skippin’ records for our original art.
If the vinyl is carved into, its for lookins’ not playins’. Some of our limited edition art we include the original vinyl in good listening condition “in a protective sleeve behind the frame”. What we do is use the original album cover artwork and carve our inspired design onto a random record to frame.
