Ariele Alasko was born in sunny Montery, California. After discovering her creative talents at a very young age, Ariele fell in love with creating artwork. She spent her teenage years dreaming about turning her passion into her life’s purpose and subsequently applied to art school. In 2005, Ariele’s career was off to a good start: she was accepted to New York’s prestigious Pratt Institute to study sculpture. She was soon captured by the vibrant life of the city and became determined to pursue her career in the Big Apple. Although Ariele studied to become a sculptor, she always had an urge to create things that fit well into houses. Thus, she set her focus completely towards her passion and started making reclaimed furniture: Lacking financial and infrastructural resources, Ariele did not wait to find a perfect studio to work on her art but instead made a little space to work in, between the living room and the kitchen of her tiny Brooklyn apartment. Despite the spatial restriction, she stuck to her goal and firstly focused on building small things like tabletops and cutting boards, but eventually, when she started building bigger artworks, she quickly ran out of space. With commissions coming in, after eight months Ariele was able to start looking for a real studio that she found after a grueling three-month hunt. She moved into the new location with a good friend with whom she refurnished the whole place in three weeks and went on to separate it into two soundproof studios. Able to make as much noise as desired and capable of returning to a non-dusty space after work, Ariele started her new adventure and steadily made a name for herself. Collecting materials throughout all of Brooklyn, mainly from houses that were broken down, Ariele built tons of furniture out of material that would have otherwise remained unnoticed, perceived as obsolete, or regarded as useless. Today, Ariele continues to work in her beloved Brooklyn studio and regularly goes out to collect new material that she repurposes for further awesome furniture and artwork. She recently travelled across America to collect material that she used to design, build and furnish her father’s recently opened Italian restaurant ‘Il vecchio’; Ariele is living her dream. via http://www.amazers.org/ariele-alasko http://www.arielealasko.com/
