Description

Here we have a handmade taxidermy diorama featuring a little mole flying his pet wasps.

The entire piece apart from the bell jar is made by my own hand.

The mole was found by my friend already deceased, and i found the dead wasps dotted around a derelict property i had once explored.

The mole was taxidermied using traditional taxidermy method's that i have learnt by myself. My great great grandfather was a leather worker, skinner and furrier and my gran reckoned this is where i have got my interest from.

I have been doing taxidermy almost 6 years now ever since i did my art degree. I decided to do it because i always felt drawn to nature and dead things in particular and i have always wanted to preserve decay, its kind of like a morbid obsession, creating child like beauty from death.

I am creating a series of works that i hope to exhibit at some point.

(Please contact me if you can help me with this! )

me and my work have been on the tv and radio and numerous publications. most notably the hit channel 4 tv show ''All creatures great and stuffed'', a taxidermy documentary i was filmed in for 15 minutes of the show. It was aired internationally and i have recognition of my work from all over the world.

I have also been featured in VICE USA. You can find out more about me and my work if you google my name.

The bell jar measures 10.5'' by 5''.

I have sold out of many taxidermy pieces but shall be uploading more as time goes by. I have a lot of jewellery and taxidermy accessories for sale , please have a look at my other listings!

Dont hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions about my work.
