A true midwestern artist is gearing up to launch his latest line of optic frames in the next few weeks. Chris Mantz of Drift Eyewear Company's latest project is a limited run of 100 pieces to be called The Timber Collection. The concept is simple - substance, change and ecological responsibility. The Timber Collection which follows the themes Chris' work uses reclaimed wood. The styles in this series that are being previewed in the Labrabbit Optics store on Ashland right now are three different types of wood. One style with nail holes, one style akin to a white washed picket fence and another that is harvested from a roofing truck. All styles are projected to sell at $500 at Drift's regular dealers as soon as the collection launches.
