Pirolette



Artist Statement: Pirolettes are made to order from you or your loved ones profile. The picture is an example only of someones else's profile.

The 'Dali' Pirolette is made with 2 different profiles on the same piece. All Dali's are 9 inches tall and are cupped out at the top to form a 'Shallow Chalice'.

It's made by carving your "life sized profiles" into Walnut, Maple or Cherry, (your choice), to form your personalized sculpture.

Place the “Pirolette” to your face and it will match your profile. Locate it near a wall and the shadow of the "Pirolette” will be your silhouette's.

Your 2 profiles captured forever in an object of art. An optical illusion of shadow and light, each one unique because it’s both of you!

Just take a photo of your profile by following our easy instructions that we will send to you in a PDF file!

Pirolette's take 2-3 weeks to complete.

Turn Your Head has been featured on HGTV, The Wall Street Journal, Elle, Daily Candy, Cookie magazine and invited to the "Design and Emotion" exhibition at the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany in February 2008
