The Vermin Collection

I discovered Reid Peppard‘s website thanks to an article on Juxtapoz. Working with creatures sourced from roadkill or pest control, Reid makes some of the best wearable taxidermy I’ve seen.

    Awwww~ That makes me really sad, actually. That first rat bears striking resemblance to my recently deceased, beloved little ratty. D;

    Reminds me of Julia Deville’s work.

    Sorry..but this is no fashion. This is revolting and disgusting

    Sabine, check out Julia Deville’s stuff. She is also a vegetarian who works with naturally deceased critters, with reverence to the value of life, but I feel it’s more subtley, elegantly done. I think it’s her initial background in jewellery first then taxidermy training second, that gives her the edge and makes her work a bit more wearable.

    Sorry Reid if you’re reading and you’re offended by my comment. I rather like the dove/pigeon head one actually.

  5. Red Says:

    I’m with Sabine on this one. Consciously or not, it calls to mind the same “dominance over the little creatures” mentality that makes hunters so repulsive in my eyes.

    I am not entirely certain what to make of this.

    I think I’ll just make my living cat curl around my neck instead.
