The annual sculptural show curated by Chet Zar opens this Friday at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica California.
I have a new piece in the show ( see previous post) and the collaborative piece I did with Chet earlier in the year will also be on display again. There is lots of top notch talent in this show so give yourself a treat and visit if you possibly can.
Horace Mooch was teased through school for his moustache which had unfortunately been installed upside down. Unable to afford a replacement he taught himself basic metalworking skills and fashioned himself a new one.
The replacement never reached his face. So exquisite was it that the Dean of his collage purchased it for himself and started a trend for handmade Tashes. So taken was he with his new found talent and popularity that he set up in business and soon became the go-to place for high end facial adornments. The little workshop was passed from father to son and is now in the fourth generation. Each Horace in turn waring their own Tash upside down in memorium of the founder.
