Electric Coffin Supply Co. is a Seattle-based creative firm whose slogan is "Built from Death," a colorful way of expressing its mission of using reclaimed materials and imagery to create something new. The phrase takes on an entirely new meaning with Electric Coffin's Boxes of Death, an annual traveling art show featuring 50 miniature handmade coffins, designed by 50 individual artists like wood block artist Dennis McNett and ceramics designer Charles Krafft. Patrick "Duffy" De Armas, who runs Electric Coffin with partner Justin Elder, created the concept of the exhibition to showcase the coffin "as a personalized vessel to showcase who a person was." Boxes of Death opens tonight in Portland and travels to L.A. on April 12th. Go here for more info. via: Cool Hunting
