    I build ghosts and perform artistic necromancy using the old science of diaphonization.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I do commissions and custom orders on request, just send me a message and we can work something out! I can also make pieces with donated animals.

Care instructions

Avoid heat and direct sunlight, though LED backlighting should be just fine. These animals are coloured using biological stains that bind to calcium and collagen, not traditional dyes, so the colours should remain bright for decades with proper care.

Where do you source your animals from?

I use sustainable sources. My animals are all donated, found dead in the wild, part of vintage scientific collections, or are byproducts of the food/pet trade that would otherwise have been thrown away. I do not kill animals for my art.

Because of this, the animals are often not perfect and may have broken bones, injuries, missing parts, etc.
