30+ Stages of Skullwork
Casting, Skullscape, Headdress and Completion


What are Dreams of the Dead skulls?


Pretty, shiny things—and other materials used. From nature come shells and fossils; bones, teeth and claws, scavenged remains from deer and small creatures felled by predators; feathers from both local wildlife and millinery suppliers. Lace and doilies, ribbons and mylar, glitter and sequins, beads and glass gems, mirrors, wire, watch parts, fishing lures. Anything that sparkles, or sparks the imagination, finds a role in the skullscape, headdress, or exterior surface. —KH
