The Tash Stash

TashStashPromoWideLorez

Horace Mooch was teased through school for his moustache which had unfortunately been installed upside down.  Unable to afford a replacement he taught himself basic metalworking skills and fashioned himself a new one.
The replacement never reached his face. So exquisite was it that the Dean of his collage purchased it for himself and started a trend for handmade Tashes. So taken was he with his new found talent and popularity that he set up in business and soon became the go-to place for high end facial adornments. The little workshop was passed from father to son and is now in the fourth generation. Each Horace in turn waring their own Tash upside down in memorium of the founder.

ABS, PVC, Epoxy, MDF, Rubber, Lead, Glass, Polyurethane resin, Leather, Paper, Found Objects. Mounted on a wooden shelf.
16″ x 16″ approx.

Got Wood!

EdwardWoodheadFRLorez

 

Each year the awesome Blamo toy company has a custom show of its all wooden art toys. Each year to date I have been too busy to take part. This year they gave me a really early warning.. so I was able to finally do something for them. The results are Mr. Edward Woodhead.
