About

The story behind GratefulBones -

I source and find inspiration from nature, life and death.
I see all three of those things as one.
I re-purpose the dead to honor their death and to have meaning. All animals and their remains are ethically sourced. Most of my creations come from animals found from hiking or roadkill, however I do purchase some of the animals/animal remains used in my art. I buy from rachers, farmers and fellow vulture culturists. Absolutely no animals were killed for the purpose of my art.

Frequently asked questions
How do you acquire your remains?

All animals and their remains are sourced ethically by myself. I often find remains from hiking or roadkill, however some animals/animal remains are bought or gifted to me. These items come from a network of people that include friends, acquaintances, ranchers, farmers and fellow vulture culturists and taxidermists. Absolutely no animals are ever killed or harmed for the purpose of my art.

How do I care for a wet specimen?

All my wet specimens are preserved in formalin amd kept on 70% rubbing alcohol. As per postal office rules I cannot ship these items with the alcohol inside the jar. 70% rubbing alcohol can be purchased at any grocery store for $1-2. Simply add the alcohol and you're good to go!
