We received an email from Mark Winfield in Kilkenny, Ireland, telling us about his ventriloquist masks he makes out of wood and thought we’d share this with everyone.
Here’s his email:
I read a blog Dan wrote about wood ventriloquist half face mask back in 2011,well just to let you know that I am about to go in to production making ventriloquist face masks made out of lime or linden as you call it in the US. Up to now I have some samples made up and I hope to set up making them very soon as I have to sort out supplies. Being made out of wood no two are the same and they do take time to make however I have sped this up a bit by investing in machinery. What’s more they are non toxic unlike fiber glass constructed ones . I think they look very good and they work very well too. Also I can do different skin tones teeth styles, bad goofy missing teeth. Can you please post this information on your web site. Please phone or email for price.

Great! I’m all for hand made, hand carved and wood. I think Mark’s got a winner here.
