SEABISCUIT star Jeff Bridges has used his creative talents to adorn his home with a range of unusual decorations - clay heads.

The Hollywood actor often makes plates, cups and other ceramic gifts for pals on special occasions, but he doesn't like to allow any of the leftover materials to go to waste.

He says, "Usually, what I try to do is make something with my hands for my dear friends... I'm into making things out of clay.

"Usually, when I'm through making a pot of some sort or a vase or something, I'll have a little chunk of clay left over and I'll usually make a little head."

Bridges now has dozens of the heads scattered around his home.
