Ok so these skulls were found in a box placed in a flower bed that was as dead as these skulls. I would love to find skulls and upon reading some of the comments from passersby it seems a lot of folk found them “Nasty” and one woman even said ”That’s ridiculous, this is a family neighborhood.” This is one of the many reasons I love skulls, just look how much they disturb folk, especially when they are placed in such and unexpected place.
We fully expect you guys to place a skull in weird places and send us the photos of course, would make an interesting post!
Yes it is time to throw away the cocktail fishbowl and start drinking from a skull bowl. Bespoke Barware creates all sorts of unique items from drinking vessels to bar tools. You can either purchase from their existing range of designs or get in touch to see if they can create that mad thought in your head.
That means you can drink from brainpans made from ceramic, glass, plastic, metal or, well they say anything else you are after. Here are few from their existing range.
Freelance artist Meg Coleman has some fantastic skull sculptures or in her words ‘Skull-pture’ (Nice one!). She is presently interested in the “beauty of the remnants left after life’. That is probably one of the most beautiful sentences I have read.
Meg currently has two forms of skulls available for purchase. The first and most impressive are the sculptural skull lights. These are cast to represent clear quartz crystal but also come in a variety of styles like marble, green, white or slate. I have surprisingly not seen a skull light like this before and I must say it does look rather fine. Prices are £350-£450 depending on choice of finish.
The second are skulls cast from a silicone mould that can be decorated to any effect. It’s a pretty good looking cranium as far as skulls go. Prices are £120-£250 depending on design.
I’m not sure what an Alien Fisher Skull is but it’s definitely not a human skull. I repeat this is not human. This skull was created by Deviant artist Nitocris by sculpting with red clay and then painting over with craft paint after firing. This is the first sculpture he has created since he was 4 years old so pretty damn good in my books.

Glen Preece, a UK based artist who specialises in portraiture, creates these fine art skulls using pencil and/or an oily dry brush to create photo realistic drawings. Welcome to the Skull Appreciation Society Glen – we fricken love your skulls. Keep ‘em coming.
I love finding freaky skull shit and did some exploring. I found these gross and a little sickening skull scarification scars on a few strange blogs. Not sure if it’s my cup of tea but they certainly deserve their spot on the Society wall of fame. You cannot question their love for skulls. Which is obviously extreme!
Some dark skull action from Jonathan Foerster on Depthcore. His highly layered and textured digital designs are dark fantasy worlds where I wouldn’t mind visiting. Jonathan also has his on website called ‘At Least We Dream‘ which is worth a visit.
These Halftone Polygons Skulls, by designer Jesse Johanning, were converted to halftones in order to screen print the graphics. Jesse commented on his project saying: “The goal of this project is dealing with man’s faulty and sometimes imprecise perception as well as the Decartesian idea that death is the only thing that is absolutely certain.”
We’ve also included process shots of the stages he went through in Photoshop.
