A Natural History of Loss jump-started our foray into creating works in sterling silver, way back in 2011. Having been trained in the fields of Fine Arts, making things were a second nature to us. We wanted to make things that mattered, not only to us, but to inspire others too. So we decided to take the art out of the galleries and make them into wearable sculptures.
Being our first body of work in silver, this series of silver animal skulls was painstaking to develop, from getting the small skulls right with the required textures, sourcing tiny but strong wooden plaques and even the box packaging has to round up the overall mood of the collection. But we have to say, the results was worth every bit of our time.
Our dear friend Darrell drew us accompanying images for the collection, which are just too amazing not to share. We've attached them below, so take a guess which skull belongs to which animal?
