We’ve been lucky enough to also go Brazilian dancing with Emily in Brick Lane, but that’s a story for another time. I can confirm that her dancing skills are nearly as good as her drawing skills
What a great idea! I wish I had thought of it first TBH but I guess I’ll just have to get over it and go have some fun creating a cool skull at the Lauren Baker Skull Workshop.
Lauren’s skull workshop was a huge hit at Tate Modern where 200 participants decorated skulls. Plus her previous workshops at Hoxton Hotel, Shoreditch House and Museum of Pathology were all fully booked. You should probably go.
- 3.5 hour workshop includes materials and refreshments
- Learn about the use of skulls in art
- Hear about Lauren Baker’s journey of skull art
- Use a diverse range of materials to paint and embellish your skull
- Take your finished skull art home
I actually shared this on our Facebook page already but added it to the list as it needed to feature on the society wall of appreciation. This sculpted baby skull lamp has been created by Norrin Radd and is cast in herculite plaster, brass or silver paint finish. The lamp consists of 33 unique skulls in total – the detail shot below shows one of the skulls, which actually looks like a tortoise!
You can visit Norrin Radd’s profile here on Etsy. His collection also includes a lamp which consists of boobs, which is pretty cool too.
This 3-dimensional skull, by tattoo artist Scott Campbell, was part of Noblesse Oblige art show in LA and is comprised of a stack of $11,000 in cut, un-cut currency sheets.
Funnily enough I have seen this skull before and was meant to post about it ages ago too. Better late than never yeah
This beautifully crafted paper skull design was created by Matthieu Jacobs from D-Sturbed. The origami influence is evident here and we are loving this skull design.
Li Hongbo uses layers of paper to create life-size flexible art sculpures. This video shows a variety of his work, including a skull piece, and talks about his latest exhibition, aptly named Pure White Paper, at the Dominik Mersch Gallery in Sydney Australia.
We are giving away the Book of Skulls to one lucky skull lover. The book, which we’ve blogged about before, is by Faye Dowling and includes a brief history of skulls in art and also loads of images of beautiful skull creations too.

The Book Of Skulls by Fay Dowling
The Lake Monsters Dredge ‘Bone’ edition from Rotofugi & Brian Morris is an menacing looking sculpture/toy but there’s nothing wrong with adding some delightfully evil skull sculptures to the collection! The Bone version features is ivory vinyl with a two-tone brown paint treatment.
