Transparent ruby sheathed in silver leaf, a classic and especially blingy look. Inspired by Venetian sculptural sensibilities exploiting a similar use of precious metals and striking colors. Ruby Deer Skull is approximately 8 in. wide and is the first from my Trophy Series to be completed with a display stand. As with many pieces of art the mounting and framing are often more involved than the creation of the artwork itself. This particular piece was recently donated to a fundraiser at Museum of Glass for my dear friend.
I recently returned from a trip back home from the lovely state of Massachusetts. I was there celebrating my mothers 70th birthday, what a good looking gal. I was extraordinarily pleased to gift her one of my new Trophy Skulls. After years of Baby Head Cups and Goblets It was nice to present to her something more artistic and unique. <3 U Mom!
I wanted to produce an intimate sculptural piece that resonates with the cultural of the Pacific Northwest. Additionally I want this piece to be approachable to young collectors, keeping in line with today’s smaller more minimal aesthetic. This piece must be contemporary as well as timeless. Expertly crafted while embodying my personal design sensibility. Allow me to introduce your new Trophy. These are small intimate works that honors you the hunter, the hunter of style, the hunter of glam. No camo no guns no hiding in the brush in the rain waiting to kill something. This is a Trophy you can have for your own. Just unholster your checkbook and pull the trigger. -Oliver
Each of my Trophy skulls are approximately 8 inches in the largest dimension and are produced in an array of colors and designs. I employ silver leaf and striking powders on some and others I let the transparency of the class speak for itself. Each piece is available as a stand alone object or mounted on a stand or wall piece. Please contact me for pricing and availability.
