Spec Heads - A safe and convenient way to store your glasses while you rest or sleep.
These Spec Heads are made from Huon Pine. Each Spec Head is an individual creation. I start by selecting a piece of wood from my storeroom. I handle it and inspect it until an idea comes to me on how to create a unique head from it. Then I set about creating a balanced head with eyes and a way to rest glasses. I paint the eyes using oil-based pastels and coat the surface with a matt fixative.
I have a passion for wood as a remarkable low energy, sustainable, renewable, recyclable natural material. I am committed to wood recycling, and believe that no wood should be going into land fill. I rescue wood on a regular basis.
