About UniquelyMorbid

Invoking curiosity, one dragon at a time.

The art that I create is reminiscent of what could have been found in a cabinet of curiosity. Many of my art projects contain animal remains. With my art, I try to bring beauty and life back into what death has left behind. The materials I use will always be in some state of decay; my art, much like life, is not permanent.

No animals are killed, or harmed for the sole purpose of my art. My Baby Dragon Skeletons are created with bones that are humanely harvested from owl pellets. The owls do all of the hard and gruesome work; I just wait until they throw up the undigested materials (bone, fur, and feathers) and allow my imagination to run wild.

Each one of my creations is treated to allow for the safety and prolonged life of both the materials and whoever wishes to handle them. Baby Dragons Skeletons are my specialty. It takes days to create an individual dragon skeleton. The more complex the design, the longer the process will be.

I have been creating baby dragon skeletons since 2010, and although my technique has been improved upon, the overall process for creating a baby dragon has been left nearly unchanged. As time goes on, I hope to continue refining my techniques as I bring life to my wonderfully unique and sometimes morbid creations.

    Hello, I love creating obscure works of art that push the boundary between adorable and horrifying. I view my art as a tribute to the animals that once lived, providing them with a new life. I hope you enjoy my little creations -no animals are harmed

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Every item that I create is a work of art and should be treated with the utmost care. Most of my work contains real and ethically sourced animal bones that are small and extremely fragile. Many of my items are contained inside of glass bottles or jars, which may break if exposed to extreme temperature changes. The dragon eggs I create are made with real bird eggs and are extremely fragile. Please be very careful about handling, transporting, and storing my works of art. Please keep all items away from moisture, direct sunlight, sources of heat, children, and animals. You are responsible for the safety and well-being of the items purchased. Do not bang, drop, step-on, throw, or otherwise bring about harm to the items.

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me with any requests for custom items.

Where do you get your bones?

The majority of my bones are meticulously dissected from owl pellets. Larger bones are ethically sourced via donations, surplus from my taxidermy projects, and occasional purchases.

What does "Ethically Sourced" mean?

For me, “Ethically Sourced” means that the animal or insect (from which I am using the bones or parts) was not intentionally killed by a human for the purpose of art, sport, cruelty, or profit. I strongly believe that no part of an animal should go to waste if any parts can be salvaged.

Please be aware that I will occasionally use vintage or craft quality parts that would otherwise be discarded. I also use leftover remains from animals that have been hunted/humanely killed for the purpose of harvesting the meat for food.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns!

What is an owl pellet?

​When an owl is hungry, it will go hunting and devour its prey. Unfortunately, owls don’t have any teeth so instead of chewing their food they take large bites and end up swallowing a lot of indigestible materials. These materials (bones, fur, and feathers) are compacted and regurgitated in the form of a pellet.

Do you have any bat skeletons/skulls?

No. The majority of bat skulls and skeletons are imported into the United States and I have yet to find a source that meets my ethical standard. There is a growing movement in the vulture culture community to move away from these imported bat remains due in part because they are not sustainably harvested. I urge you to please do your research before you purchase any bat skeleton/skull/taxidermy specimen.

Returns for Damaged Item(s)

All sales are final. I do not accept or offer returns, exchanges, or refunds. If your purchase arrives and is damaged, you will need to contact me within 24 hours of the item's arrival. You will need to take pictures of the box, my packaging, and the broken item(s). You will need to keep all packaging and follow all instructions governed by USPS or insurance company, which may include physically bringing the packing to their designated office. Failure to comply with required insurance claim procedures will forfeit your claim to any and all possible refunds. Patience is required. If the insurance company denies the claim, no refund will be given.

Wrong Address or Un-deliverable Mail

All sales are final. I do not accept or offer returns, exchanges, or refunds. It is your responsibility to ensure you have entered the correct address during checkout. Once the label is printed, I can not make changes or adjustments to your order. If the package is delivered to the wrong address, there is nothing I can do, no refunds will be issued. If the package is marked un-deliverable, if or when it arrives back to my location, a custom listing will be created for you with additional shipping and handling fees. You will be charged the amount listed during the original checkout period or the current price to ship - whichever amount is higher. Items will not be re-shipped "Free" regardless of your original purchase agreement. No refunds.
