I happened across the bones of a dead deer a few years ago while foraging for chanterelles in the hills west of 280 in Silicon Valley. Already cleaned by the wind, the bugs, and the passage of time, I picked up the bones and figured I’d use them somehow. Though it took a few years to germinate, I rearticulated the pelvic bones, make a mold out of them, cast them 16 times in bronze and made this chandelier. This was the project over which I fell in love with bronze casting. It hangs over my dining room table to this day.
