About Custom Cranium


Artist's Statement:

"I think this type of art is something of a second life for a being that may not have gotten to live out its full original life, and it's evocative of a regeneration, or reincarnation of sorts. Every life is important and artists such as ourselves are an important part of all of these animals, we touch their life every time we touch their bodies. It's an homage to life, if you really see it. Not death, although the two can't really be separated.

Because of artists who work with these materials, I hope every part of every animal is used."

Mission:

No animals are ever harmed for the purpose of becoming Custom Cranium artwork. Custom Cranium simply gives more meaning to what is left after that death.

About Custom Cranium and the Snuff Stuffies:

Darien made her first stuffies in 1997 as a hobby, honing her taxidermy skills over the years including working at places like Skulls Unlimited. She began producing Snuff Stuffies for the rest of us in 2007.

These days her products include Snuff Stuffies (stuffed animals repurposed with bones, jewelry, armature and more), bone jewelry and other "Osteo-oddities". Custom work IS available!

Custom Cranium has a good following on Facebook, please join us and "Like this page". See the main web site for more information as well as links to the shop to see what is available right now.
