strange, funky, cool, and ... disturbing. i don't know yet what to say about it, but wanted to post the link here so as to remind myself to spend some more time at her site.

jessica joslin makes creatures from animal bone, antlers, velvet, antique hardware, music wire, beads, glass eyes, leather, brass, pewter, fur... she finds her materials in taxidermy supply stores, antique shops, fleamarkets and wherever oddments can be found.

if taxidermy and animal bones used for other things than their original purpose bother you, you don't want to click on that link.

Wow... how pretty. I wish I was proficient enough with organic material to risk that kind of work... I've always had a fondness for art using bird bones; so delicate, so many possibilities.

If repurposing animal bits bothers me, I'm in trouble -- deer antlers are just *great* long-lasting dog chews.

Her stuff is just remarkable.

Wow. I like her older stuff better; there seems to be more variety of material and shape. It's all amazing, though.
