Life-sized Translucent Heads of Resin, Glass and Found Objects

Weird? Certainly.  But what fun!  Some are beautiful.  Some are disturbing.  And some are downright bizarre. Using recycled glass mannequin heads as a starting mold, I've cast bits of stained glass, marbles, glitter, confetti, found objects and all sorts of sparkly stuff in resin to create these translucent works of art.  Some have sections of the glass peeled or chipped away to create an interesting layered or crystalline effect.  Others have the glass intact or removed entirely to maintain a slick glossy finish.  Patricia, my wife, has dubbed them, "Thought Fulls" because she thinks they are very thought-provoking.  So what do they mean?  I honestly have no idea.  For some strange reason I just felt compelled to create them.

They are all life-sized (approximately 11 inches high) and vary in weight depending on the content.  I have made a thorough attempt to blunt any sharp edges so they may be handled without risk. The heads are currently priced at $185 each.
