First Friday Fun Fest will be celebrated at Tehachapi Treasure Trove, on Friday evening, June 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. The Treasure Trove will be featuring Superbia, a delightful group of young men who create unique wood rings and arrowhead necklaces. Come meet the artists, enjoy food and wine and listen to music by Art Larson on clarinet.

Superbia is a group of students who met at the robotics club at Tehachapi High School. They gained a sense of pride from their work with the club and went on to experiment with wood and developed wood rings. They have been making the rings for about a year. The rings are an alternative for folks who are allergic to metals. The rings they make are of two varieties: carved out of hardwood or layered veneer. The hardwood rings are initially cut with a hole cutter then drilled in the center and sanded to a smooth finish and size. The veneer rings are soaked and bent into shape then glued together and sanded to a smooth surface. The rings are then sealed with a durable finish. The group has also created arrowhead necklaces. All of the pieces are beautifully done.

Superbia originally was formed by Oden Dailo, Julian Romano and Andres Pena. They were later joined by Adam Hansen. Adam and Oden are now college students but remain in touch with the other two. Julian moved to Tehachapi with his family in 2013. He formerly lived in Hawaii. Andres has lived in Tehachapi for four years after his family moved from Arvin. Both Julian and Andres are seniors this year and hope to get jobs in the aerospace industry here in Tehachapi.
