The Rubber Barber Erasers Allow Children to Shape Tresses

These Rubber Barber erasers have been designed by Chen Lu Wei. Wei introduces a playful concept into the classroom here as the pieces each feature large chunks of hair, to be decreased and molded at the hands of children with each swipe of the erasers.

Those who take home the Rubber Barber sets can manipulate the shapes as they see fit. As they continue to go down in size, the contours of the faux tresses, glasses and overall shapes of the heads can be played with, leaving it up to kids to decide what the final product may look like. Wei has therefore made homework and in-class work more appealing as the artistic project can develop over time.
