Like taxidermy, the new collection of sculptures and figurines by the New York-based artist Suzanne Hagerstrom is intended for those who have an affinity for the macabre. Hagerstrom produces an array of critter-like pieces which range anywhere from actual representations of animals to imaginary magical creatures all made with the bones of long-dead animals and domesticated fowl. Some of her creations even include hair, which is collected from her own head.

Haggerston is currently working on a collection which will draw inspiration from the tales of Pinocchio, one that will surely utilize long bones shaped for lying noses. Although this may not be for everyone’s artistic taste, this ingenious medium of art demonstrates the possibility for art as well as consumer products utilizing organic materials that are currently seen as trashed, discarded and even buried.
