Richard Allen's Face Collage

TURN ON A HAPPY FACE
Here's looking at you!

SHOP OWNER: Richard Allen

    I finished this plate recently and I thought you might like to add it to Shop Shots. The plate is 12-in. in diameter and 14-in. across the ears. The materials are as follows:

  •     *the main part of the face is quartersawn sycamore
  •     *the hair is machun
  •     *the ears are purpleheart
  •     *the eyes are birdseye maple with blue acrylic
  •     *the nose is curly maple
  •     *the mouth is red acrylic
        I turned the plate round and drilled out for the ears. Once the ears were glued in, I turned the whole plate.
        When I showed this piece around at work, I received quite a few chuckles and a lot of smiles. Hope it amuses you, too.
        Have a good day.
    . . . Richard Allen
