I SKULL YOU

Skulls feature prominently in my work… There is something strangely compelling and beautiful about intricately carved skulls.

Republic of You skulls are all individually carved by hand from naturally shed deer antler. The blueprint we use comes from a 300-year-old design passed down through generations of a family of carvers.

I just adore the grungy allure they add to a piece when coupled with other interesting and striking features such as the softness of a cowry shell or a beautiful antique key.
