My workshop is chock full of found treasures from adventures across the country. I select a palette of colors from across many mixed materials and get to work, snipping and shaping and applying in careful layers until the perfect piece emerges.

This mule deer came together over a hand-crafted wooden form, layered with reclaimed metal, wood and leather, tucked and folded to create just the right shape. The antlers are from a real mule deer buck, meticulously assembled to the deer form.

Look closely and you will see the tiny details in the materials that make this cruelty-free memorialization of an animal truly one-of-a-kind.
