This week’s MotD theme: Buckle Up

Well here’s an intriguing belt buckle created by artisans Jessica Lee and Matthew Rohrbaugh, of 100Mics.net in Portland, Oregon of Frank Zappa‘s iconic image. I love all the different textures they created in this piece: from the smoothness of his face and hands to the linear texture of the hair and clothes.

About this buckle they states:

This 2 1/2 ” round buckle is cast in solid white brass. It has a 3D feel to it as the stencil inspired design is done from a relief wax carving which allows for all the detail Frank Zappa face to stand out. The buckle feels smooth and solid and is very well built.  …

Time and attention to detail have gone into this buckle. We hope you enjoy our tribute to Frank Zappa and his love of music, which is the bond that ties us all together!

Inspiration for Today

On the back of this buckle, Jessica and Matthew cast one of their favorite Zappa quotes which also makes for a great inspiration for today:

“A mind is like a parachute, it doesn’t work if it is not open.”
– Frank Zappa
