I saw this on Presurfer and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Sure, some people might consider it narcissistic to decorate your mantle with your own profile, but I bet the majority of people probably wouldn't even notice the negative space anyway, so you could conceivably admire your own image in almost total secrecy, as if you were simply admiring an oddly shaped wooden chalice. I totally want one. At $150 bucks a pop, though, it might be a little out of my means:
Buy one here.

i'm not terribly comfortable with my profile, so everyone else would be thinking "wow, what a strange mantle-thing" and i'd be thinking "god, i can't believe my nose really LOOKS like that..."

That is so very cool. It's tripping me out even more than the traditional ink vase/face.
But I'm with Clara - I don't need to be staring at my nose all day.
How many people like their own nose enought to stick it on their mantle? I'd be much more inclined to buy one which used someone else's profile.

But maybe you'd like to stare at your wife's face all day...or husband? Or grandparents might want to look at their grandkiddies all day :)
Dan, fork out the 150! It's custom made. From my experience this is cheap :) Plus I got one...since I'm Tom's eldest daughter of Turn Your Head (grin)
Thanks for posting us!

Now, see...I would have expected you to get several and then give them as gifts to unsuspecting recipients. That way, your profile could sit on the mantles of all your friends without them even knowing. Then wait to see if anyone ever gets it. By the way...planetdan is BIG in SoCal...way to go buddy.

That's kind of cool, I guess, except the chalice pictured makes the woman's features seem fatter than they really are. In fact, I wouldn't have guessed that was supposed to be her profile. $150? Nah.

Anon, if they weren't $150 a piece, I totally would have bought one for each and every unsuspecting acquaintance I've got.

That would so rock. I wear my Dan T at parties at my house and hang around my Dan profile chalice....MMM HMMM.
Do you think like 5 of them with all of my families profiles would be totally tacky?

not really on topic, although I think the challis is cool, but I was wondering if you ever did the t-shirts with your face on them and put them back on the racks at Target or Walmart. I thought that was the funniest thing I ever heard and was hoping you'd do it and then let us know if people bought them!

Those profile chalice thingies would make a great Miller 5 album cover.

DAN! Why haven't u photoshopped your profile into this pic??? I'm disappointed in you. Get on it!! I need to see the results to see how it would look on my nantle.

And once it is on my nantle, I want one for my mantle.

This is genius. I'm totally buying multiples of my profile and guilting my parents and unborn children into keeping them forever. My profile will live for ever as a big honkin' chunk of wood in someone's closet.
By Bloghungry, at 12:32 AM
Thanks to this post, I've been walking around imagining what everybodies profiles would look like as a chalice.
By Gwenhwyfar, at 7:45 PM
I think it's pretty cool. Good news...it's on sale, only $99.95 for a limited time.
