Horned Skulls, twisted creatures, and clawed hands made of wrapped and painted wire are mounted on carefully painted and distressed epoxied wooden mounts. Some glow in the dark, some are florescent, but by being made of wire all can be fully adjusted and articulated which invites a sense of play. Just don’t get them wet or feed them after midnight.

CRYPTODERMIA: Skulls & Alium
Surrealist wire sculpture & assemblage mounts. A non-animal ossuary of cryptid taxidermy.
Big things. Weird things. Large horned skulls and articulated animal skeletons mounted on uniquely crafted sculpted mounts. This is where you will find a diverse and exotic collection of of my larger works of Cryptodermia.
MOUNTED HANDS. PRAGMATIC SCULPTURE.
Each MANIBUS mount is made of sturdy wrapped wire which allows each piece to be contorted and arranged to the users unique specifications yet remain strong enough to hold its form under weight of held objects. Some can glow-in-the-dark and some have bees in them. All are 100% unique. They can keep your keys safe or hold on to your coat. Flip off your friends or hail a taxi in demonic style. You could even set them up right and have them hold open your cookbook. Everyone could use a hand once in a while.
LITTLE SCRAPS. TINY EXPERIMENTS IN FORM AND COLOR. THINGS THAT ARE NOT LIKE THE OTHERS.
Smaller and more abstract then my larger works of Cryptodermia these pieces take on a wide variety of shapes and colors. Over time offshoots of well received designs and forms have evolved into their own sub series.
