Matt Willet x SHUT $15,000 Golden Skateboard

After unveiling his gold plated skateboard in March, New York City-based artist Matt Willet provides a behind-the-scenes video of the transformation process for SHUT.

As the video describes, the idea was a “Father/Son” project between Matt and his dad Peter Willet of Epner Technologies, a Brooklyn-based company that constructs gold plated elements for NASA. The fruit of the family’s collaborative effort is a 99.9% pure electro plated, gold skateboard.

Check out the creation of the $15,000 deck in the player above.
