Description

Craft, KISR, and talented local artist Colin Russel, aka Ghost Town, have teamed up to bring you this limited edition, super premium Kendama. This collab features a Craft made Eerie shaped ken and a Rhino cleared tama with multiple tracking lines and custom art engraved near the string hole. The Eerie shape was designed in the Craft shop by Ghost Town and features a thick ken with a gradual spike curve for optimal balance and a bullet tip for increased spike longevity. Soft edges, widened stall points, and a flattened slip ring makes it easy on the hands during catches and is very fun to play.

Combining the quality of the Craft shop, a completely customized shape, a Rhino cleared tama, and the artistic talent of Ghost Town makes this one of the most premium Kendama setups possible.

From Colin Russel (aka Ghost Town)

The name “Ghost Town” comes from a time in my life when I was living outside of Detroit and spending a lot of time, both solo and with friends, exploring the many abandoned factories and buildings of the city. I’ve always been fascinated with empty spaces and those that have been forgotten. To be able to enter a place like that, to learn it’s history, and to try to put together some of the pieces of a place’s past will always be something that I love very much. “Ghost Town” is a combination of my past experiences with my current life in an illustrated form.

Over the last few years, I have spent time developing a style based off of early 1900’s black and white cartoons blended with a more modern twist of both imagery and events. Using clean lines and vibrant emotion, the pieces themselves are rather straightforward with their interpretations being delivered to the viewers more plainly. Not all art needs an intense and multi-layered meaning. My artwork functions as a space to just make folks feel relaxed and happy.
