Skull Respirator: Victorian Spoon Design

It has been some time since I last blogged about this project, as life's other obligations have intruded. I've done a little more on it since then, and here you can get the gist of it. I wanted to bring in a Victorian element so that the skull respirator didn't look too futuristic.

This is an old family serving spoon that I inherited which I have molded the end of for use on the respirator.

Here you can see one casting of the spoon end in place on the skull base. Each scallop will have this same casting mounted on it (eight in total), and the leather attachment will then lie flat between them.
