Celtic triple spiral (Triskele) mask

Happy Spring!

I’ve been so busy the last few months that I’ve completely neglected my poor mask blog. Can you forgive me?

This design was inspired by the Triskele pattern found in Celtic carvings and manuscripts. My sister spent a few weeks in Ireland recently, and I wanted to create something with an Irish flair to commemorate her trip. I’m pretty pleased with how it came out.

Day of the Dead

A Dia de los Muertos style skull mask, done as a special commission for a client. I don’t think I’ll make these a regular thing, but I might end up with a couple in my shop next fall, or do them as custom orders once in a while.

The Dark King

Experimenting with a spookier look, I tried to make this one have a kind of delicate, creepy appearance, while keeping it durable for repeated wear.

It’s really black in person, I swear. Stupid gloss finish.

Black Cat Mask

What it says on the tin:

The glossy leather sealant looks really good in person, but I’ve yet to find a way to photograph it well.

Floral Masquerade Masks- Roses and Morning Glories

A couple of new twists on earlier designs– one with roses, and one with morning glories. It’s fun arranging the flowers on the masks so that it’s most flattering to the wearer’s face.

Superhero Masks, Part II

A bevy of superhero-style and domino masks:


Alternate Color Kitsune Masks

Had another go at the kyogen-style Japanese fox mask. These color schemes aren’t at all traditional, but I thought they were pretty striking, anyway!
