Clément Lascombes AKA ZBAM is a young member of Chalk custom board project since 2015. Still studying in industrial Design school , his work is based on textures and repetitive patterns.
Making technical advanced longboards since 2012 (see "ZBAM longboards" on facebook ), he decided to make different kind of decks with Chalk by sculpting and shaping solid wood planks to make unique pieces for expositions.
Sculpted hardwood decks like the "Fish" can take more than 100 hours to shape & sculpt. Clément uses various hand tools ( essentially gouges and wood chisels) to make patterns on solid wood planks and then shape it to the final form.
For him , crafting and making things with his hands is a passion and often the way to go to make concepts in insdustrial design.
