Jessica Joslin's Whimsical Sculptures from Animal Bones

Jessica Joslin is New York-based contemporary artist who creates whimsical sculptures from animal bones and fragments of old chandeliers, samovars and antiques. “Infused with the Victorian era’s passion for natural history and arcane technology, these creatures reflect both the real and the imagined animal, the living and the dead. Through careful observation and intricate construction, they re-imagine the animal kingdom, bolt by bolt, beast by beast. Inspired by the beauty of skeletal architecture, and a passion for assemblage sculpture, Jessica Joslin began building her bestiary of mechanical animals in 1992. Her collection of creatures includes a myriad of different species and hybrids, and numbers over 200 sculptures in total.”
