Turntable Ashtrays: Scratch n’ Whiff
June 7th, 2013
Musicians and things that can be smoked go together like people and vices. Overly realistic and thus useless analogy FTW! But if those things do have a space in your life, check out the Decktray. Made by artist Terry Griffiths, these functional artworks are ashtrays that look like turntables.
Aside from the Decktrays, Griffiths also made a companion container that looks like a mixer. In our modern age, you’d be forgiven if you think that Griffiths made the Decktrays and the mixers using a 3D scanner and printer. But Griffiths is proud to say that he makes each piece by hand. Plot twist: his hands are 3D printers. Just kidding.
Call your friend who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a dog who knows a guy who can use a Web browser to order the Decktray from Griffith’s Etsy shop Sku Style. Or just get a doctor’s prescription that says you need one. The Deluxe Package sells for about $240 (USD) and includes two Decktrays and a mixer. You can also buy a single Decktray for about $120 and the mixer container for around $48. UK clubbers can also go to Griffith’s personal store.
