I turned the giant crab into a stunning 320cm(126inch) long didgeridoo after taking inspiration from the seafood after moving to Heda in July 2016.
I was just so amazed by the size of the crabs that I had to work with them.
Heda is famous for the spider crabs and I wanted to merge my two passions didgeridoos and the town I have made my home. I couldn’t think of a better way to promote the town. I hope to receive orders from around the world.
Having already made didgeridoos from Udon noodles for Kagawa prefecture and turban shells, I would love to make something from any local specilties.
