Sidetracked Again!



Thanks for all the hello's and followers. Last time I posted I was in the grips of a sidetracked Idea
the "Rattle Mobile". Managed to get back on track finishing off the pieces in progress when a figure holding a mask got me thinking. Sidetrack #2 "Masks". I'm enjoying it, but I can't decide on how to sell them. Wether as wearable or mounted on a stand. You see the  face cast I use is of a former me (younger, svelter...) I'd have to adjust the nose and such for more room. My worry is visibility. Call me paranoid but, I see a liability. I know, I know, Disclaimer! Needless to say these are not for children and I'll state as much but...
Any any ideas welcome. I think the JOL mask is a little creepy. Kinda like "pumpkin killer" or "squash slasher" the mind wanders. Well time to get back from the sidetracks and finish up.
Oh by the way Happy 5 de Mayo!

Hi Jorge, we've not met yet, so I thought I'd pop over to say "hello".

I have to admit my inital though was as wall art, firstly because they are funky!! (I'd be inclined to display them in a set of three vertically). Secondly... who would want to risk damaging one of these beauties by wearing them? I wouldn't!... just my 2 cents ;)

Thanks Lori and Hello. I've been an admirer of yours for awhile so your 2 cents are worth a fortune.

What a great idea. Halloween masks seem so obvious but I have not seen anyone doing them. Awesome work Jorge!

What an amazing idea...Halloween masks! They are so beautifully crafted. I have to agree with Lori, I think they should be hung on the wall! Great work Jorge!

Hey Jorge, have you decided what you're going to do with them yet? (not trying to be pushy, just curious). Regardless, I think you will do very well with them because they are wonderful and I agree with Will, that no one else is doing them.

BTW, I love your teapots too!

Hello Jorge,
Just discovered your blog. Love it and your work. Outstanding.
The masks are my favorite. I would mount them. Look wonderful on a wall.
