I have been stalking eBay for weeks now, in the quest for a stags head. The teens are disgusted and think I have finally gone completely mad. The swan collection has taken over the mantelpiece and I fear taxidermy may be a step too far.
So I was delighted when I came across Shauna Richardson's crochetdermy, a unique combination of taxidermy and crochet.
Shauna is one of the artists selected to take part in Artists taking the Lead, a country wide Arts Council event, which will take place in 2012. Her Lionheart project will feature 30 foot hight crochet lions in a huge taxidermy case and be situated in Nottingham town centre.
The crochetdermy is unfortunately only available on commission.
Now where is that crochet hook?
