Did anyone see the commercial for ceramic busts on the De Niro episode of SNL recently? Pretty funny stuff.

Busts that aren't too formal or militant or old-school-Greek can be cool in the right setting...

I don't like the bust-on-a-column look so much. DO love the white-bust-against-white-walls-or-bookshelf look! A playful, modern setting seems to work best.

Here's a definite don't in my book:
It's just too much like the hall of heads in Return of Oz...

[That movie is the reason I never saw the original Wizard of Oz. So much creepiness!]

I couldn't find any guy busts I liked for sale, but here are three pretty females.
cameo white resin female, $48 from urbanbarn
french girl in resin $67 burkedecor
Fredericka in Plaster $150 burkedecor


  1. I do like busts- would love to find an old vintage style one and revamp it. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a sweet comment! New follower!

  2. Oh, thank you for commenting and following an infant blogger! So sweet.

    A vintage bust would be super cool. Hope you find one!

  3. I do love a good looking bust. I have been searching for one and havent found one.

  4. I'm a bust lover, but it does have to be styled right. A whole wall of them is just creepy.
