I saw David’s glasses in a small art exhibit at Home in Encinitas. At first glance, I noticed the incredible use of classic and modern designs twisted together to create a unique artistic interpretation. There was also something very unique about the materials the frames were made from, but I couldn’t figure out what it was until I noticed a perfect cut out of them in an old vinyl record beneath. The raw look and intricate details of the frames immediately drew me in and made me want a pair.
With 10 years experience as a licensed optician David started up Spexwax, something he describes as “a new reality functional art you can wear; AKA Art-Wear.” All his glasses are made from damaged vinyl records, and high quality lenses (They also come in prescriptions). Everything down to the case (made from the actual record cover) is a one-of-a-kind creation that makes these glasses a privilege and a pleasure to wear. If you are interested in getting set up with a pair, you can contact David by email or visit his website at spexwax.com.
