Artistic Design - Featured

One of a Kind.

There is no way to replicate, re-create, or copy any piece from this collection. There are artifacts from cattle days, ranching, turn-of-the-century living, building materials, and real skulls. From back when the buffalo roamed, and the west was still wild.

From the Farm

All materials are from a farmstead in the middle of Kansas which was homesteaded during the 1850's. The barn wood has seen a few winter storms, and has been through a couple summer paintings. Showing algae and mold between layers. Some of the wood made up main support beams on the interiors and outer sidings of the buildings. The leather and reins are from a set that was abandoned after many of the straps had broken from use. They were kept in the back of the barn in case pieces could ever be salvaged. The leather had to be rehydrated and oiled before working with, then dried again into its final use. All of the cow, deer, fox, and other skulls and bone fragments were found throughout the woods, and collected from natural deaths. It takes about 7-10 years after the animal has died to have wild life and insects completely decompose the skulls naturally. Much of the work is done by beetles. Many times the skulls are filled with beetle shells and mountings. However the clean white appearance is all natural. So, you get to enjoy a recycled art from from the past.

"The best way to recycle is to reuse."
