trickster, coyote skull. $160 including shipping.
Coyote skull totem, the skull was reclaimed from a road strike.
Cleaned, degreased, sanitized, painted, and stained with oil pigments and mounted on burgundy felt in a light ornate frame, with cicada shells from the Ozarks, tiny birch cones, feathers, deer knuckles, and possum toe bones.
Frame is just over 8×11″, skull stands out about three inches from it. Ready to hang, signed on the back by the artist.
He had a very dry, kind energy to him. I could tell this animal had led a charmed life (until the end) and felt better putting a warm color in this piece. The other animal bones in this piece were collected right alongside him, under some plum trees by the blue highway here.
I feel that he may have been a humorous and crafty animal. I hope I’ve done well by him.
Piece is backed with heavy paper and will ship well-protected in much packaging, price includes tracking and insurance- no international shipping on this guy, sorry. US only.

turkey skull mount, $130 including shipping
turkey skull shadowbox assemblage with objects: driftwood, human molar, found feathers, and pebbles, about 6×9″ and 3″ deep, oil paint and bone glue used in construction.
Where I live, wild turkey abound. This skull came from a hunting neighbor- they ate the turkey, but would have discarded its skull. The molar came from a dear friend of mine who had many teeth removed all at once.
The feathers come from a neighbor’s chicken run, and the pebbles and driftwood I collected at Ona Beach on the Oregon coast, west of my home. The seedpods and nut husks were collected in the southeastern US, while I was traveling.
The snail shells were collected at Marys Peak, Oregon, and the single bone on top is from a household pet- a cat, who died of age. The human molar belonged to a friend and has been sanitized.
All items have been cleaned, degreased, sealed and sanitized, then stained or dyed before inclusion in this box.
cost includes packaging, shipping with tracking and insurance.
Insurance and delicate packaging to ensure safe arrival are included in the cost of shipping. I cannot ship this internationally due to import/export laws, sorry.

dog wishes taxidermy mount
$150 including shipping
an old, worn, found dog skull properly cleaned, stained, and painted. mounted simply in a birch box with driftwood and starling legs; upon its snout is a wishbone. sealed with matte uv spray and secured with twine and bone glue.
box is approx 10×10″
I had a strong feeling that this dog led a very difficult life; when found, the skull was worn, ragged at the edges, as if it had been sawn or gnawed at. I felt that if I could have given this dog a wish while it lived, I would have.
Of course I cannot be sure of the provenance or history of the animal; I can only speak to the feeling I had, that while I worked on it with love and care and caution, it felt glad, and appreciated the way I worked with it.
process description for this piece:
This skull took a few months to process. using an insect-cleaning method, and then antiseptic and degreasing soaks repeated over time. I use luthier’s bone glue, which I heat and cure for thickness, to mount everything. All parts of this piece are archivally preserved, sealed, and clean.
Cost includes shipping, packaging, handling, with tracking and insurance via USPS. No international shipping, US only.

These go along with the serial killer portraits. I’ll post this first, less-disturbing one for now, and then later as they get done being scanned I’ll post the rest below the jump.
This one is from a crime scene of one of the victims of Richard Ramirez, she was found gagged, on the kitchen floor. Groceries were also on the floor with her, leading some to speculate that she had been fixing a midnight snack when Ramirez surprised her.
Prints will NOT be available of these; they will be included in the book, and later the originals may be for sale.

St. Roch is the patron saint of dogs.
He is also a preventer of the plague.
he remained behind during the plague to treat people; he himself became ill. he went into the forest to die, but a dog (who is not named in any story) brought him bread and licked his wounds, saving him.
This is made from a grey fox skull, sea urchins, rockdove wings, and quilling done with paper I made myself. the tattered roses are preserved in glycerin and poly so they will stay just as they are. All mounted in a gilded frame. piece is for sale at this link.
