Daniel Tolhurst is a veteran designer and photographer who's been working in creative industries for the past 20 years. A long-time vinyl collector, Dan soon found that a lot of his records were gathering dust in his attic. Wanting to display them in a unique way, he dug out an electric power-saw and got to work. It took off from there. "It started with three on my wall - then my friends would come around and say ‘that’s really cool, can you do one for my mate’, ‘can you do something with Elton John - he’s really into Elton John!’ That’s how it started."
His series, 'Vinyl Art', is undoubtedly a masterful bit of craft, but it hasn't always sat well with some cratediggers: "People say to me, ‘how can you cut up a Beatles record?’ Truth is they printed more than a million copies of 'Let It Be' and the vinyl often looks like someone’s been skating across the floor on it."
That wax won't last forever. Check out some of Dan's work below, and head to his ETSY to pick up your own piece.
