Copper Nose Steam Punk
Following my exploration of the concept of the Plague Doctor masks, this mask follows the aesthetics of the Jules Vernes Revival/Steampunk movement. Made with the thermoplastic Wonderflex© material, it gleams with metal-like copper tones, achieved in part with the "gold-leafing" method, but using micron-thin copper leaf instead, and with highlights dry-brushed over the paisley raised-line designs. A few solid brass screw heads complete the look. This is a substantial mask and it measures about 14" from the top to the tip of the beak, not counting the added feathers. "Nostrils" on top of the snout and a larger opening underneath the jaw provide adequate air flow and allow wearer to drink from a straw without removing the mask. The goggles have interchangeable clear and dark lenses. This is a one-of-a-kind mask, never to be exactly repeated again. Leather straps with Velcro provide a secure hold.

This mask is currently available at Human Arts Gallery, 246 E. Ojai Avenue, Ojai, CA 93023, 805.646.1525.
