I am a big fan of traditional antler mounts—I own them. I am a big fan of artistic endeavors–I am an artist. I am a big fan of vintage anything—after all, I am a little vintage myself! Every now and then vintage gets a little too grungie-even for me and needs a little help……..But when is artistic taken too far? Or not far enough?
A friend sent me the above photo of artistic antlers from her trip to New York over Thanksgiving as well as the one below……. and thanks to Suzie at Urban Country Style http://urbancountrystyle.com she identified the beautiful deer damask paper from Barneby Gates http://www.barnebygates.com
I like to work with new and vintage antlers and create a custom look – I have worked with fabric on my Black Forest style mounts for clients too- but just a little more traditional in my approach.
I have found that many hunters and designers are looking for an elegant way to display their trophies – I have worked with tartan……
and nail heads…………
Is there room for creativity in the traditional antler mounting world….what do you think?
