About the furs and natural materials I use:

Anytime someone is working with furs they run into questions about ethics and legality.
All of the furs I use are taxidermy scraps or ancient pieces from old rugs or coats that were damaged and needed re-purposing.
I don't hunt any of these animals or condone the behavior of the fur industry. I have no qualms with taxidermy and I respect and admire it as an age old art form.
I believe we have a duty to the world around us to leave as little of a foot print as possible. I also believe strongly in recycling and using all of the animal. These scraps would have ended up as trash but now they live on in art and can be appreciated.
