Announcement   At Turn Your Head, we fill the space between two opposing profiles of your face. By spinning that space into a three dimensional “visage” that follows the outlined silhouettes of your two profiles, we create the "Pirolette".

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.

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

Turn Your Head has been showcased on "HGTV", in the "WALL STREET JOURNAL", COOKIE MAGAZINE, ELLE BRAZIL, DAILY CANDY AND MANY OTHERS.

I've always been a fan of the "Optical Illusion". One of my favorites is the "Rubins Vase" where some will see the "Vase" and others will see the "Face" that's portrayed in the negative space around the vase. I wanted to have that "Face" be one of a real person. At least, that's how it started. When I created the Pirolette, named beautifully by my wife Lorie, from the profiles of my young daughters it was exactly that and more... It was a personal memory of when my daughters were so young. What the Pirolette turned into, was a conversation piece. Someone would start to look at it, maybe they would see one of my daughters faces ...maybe they wouldn't... but it never failed, they would always ask about it.

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
