“Derek Keenan, the founder of Mukee Design, crafts wearable art from used skateboard decks.
Derek Keenan peers into his laser-cutting machine, setting chunks of discarded skateboard into place. Bright lights slice the wood, forming the pieces into what will soon become someone’s favorite pair of earrings, or belt buckle, or necklace. Keenan, who is a Denver native, has been taking broken skateboard decks and churning them out into something fresh since 2006; his pieces are in demand internationally, but the Mile High City is lucky enough to be able to swipe something original, light weight and colorful at the Museum of Contemporary Art gift shop.”
