ukeI love the slogan use by Providence, RI-based artist Ape & Bird:

“We make things.”

More than that, I like what they make. What particularly caught my eye at last weekend’s Portland Picnic were Ape & Bird’s folk art ukuleles – made out of found objects like cigar boxes.

About the ukuleles made by Ape & Bird: “Ukuleles made by hand from cigar boxes and broken skateboards. One of a kind functional piece of playable art. Made to order, contact us for current build times.”
