I love the antlers I assembled for these heads.
Even thought they were roughly shaped and alone don’t resemble antlers the boldness of them still represents the embodiment and visual paring representing th powerful adornments for this great animal. They are its antlers.

Goals

The importance of this project is to keep the romance of traditional hunting trophies as iconic décor of lodges and cabins without the kill. In addition to a contrast of modern interiors, the eclectic electric anchors this cool recycled aesthetic.

Process

All mounts are designed and constructed by Tom Saffle.

Additional Information

All of my Torchidermy is melted from found and recycled junk.
