Olander Earthworks Faces are inclusive and playful; evoking a primal reaction. This spectrum of emotional and gestural caricatures captures many of the universal expressions we all can identify with. These small concrete sculptures can be displayed prominently or carefully hidden in nooks and crannies, indoors or out, allowing the owner to create their own visual narratives and add a little personality wherever they may choose. Grouped or on their own, Faces are naturally collectable and make fun, unique gifts.
Color plays an important role in the vibe of each face. Here we try to offer color tones that match the “feel” of each expression and can fit into any chosen environment. Our terra-cotta, mustard and slate colors blend naturally with earth-tones, red and green can pop in a bright modern aesthetic, and grey can fit more neutral, minimalistic surroundings. If you are feeling indecisive, we suggest the antiqued grey expressions; they have a timeless quality that rarely seems out of place.
Though each face is a reproduction, we take delight in the subtle variations of each face we produce. Expect the sculptures you receive to have unique characteristics in surface color and saturation that may differ slightly from the images above. We closely inspect each piece for our standard of quality and we approve all work before it leaves the studio.
We hand title each expression, stamp our makers mark, and provide an angled hole that allows the work to hang flush and securely on a nail or screw. Keep in mind that tilting a face a little to the left or right can sometimes change the gaze or character of the expression, accentuating its personality. Have fun personalizing your faces and their locations!
