The Laughing Devil

This is the first and so far only commission I've done. It's based on a hyena, the features are slightly exaggerated to make it look more fearsome and not too much like a dog. the client wanted It to look both dangerous and a bit cute at the same time.
It was fun to make, quite tiresome to glue on all that fur, but still...

Whatever you do, don't break the glass!

Loup Garou

The head of the dreaded beast of GĂ©vaudan, along with the silverbullet that slayed it.

This one was a lot of work mainly because it's size and the fact that i had two glue on hundreds of tiny hairs. The bullet is a bit hard to see, but it's encased behind glass in the middle of the cross. It's tricky to make stuffed things, you have to make it look real, but not too alive. Since this I have made a couple more hunting trophies, they will come later.
Sorry for the bad photos...

The Kosmos Brenner

The 1878 Ebenhard Kosmos Brenner - optical raygun prototype

This is the first more serious project i embarked upon about two years ago . A Steampunk raygun. Complete with Battery and protective glasses. It's made of brass, glass, and walnut for the handle, the box is dark stained oak with velvet lining.
I made it when I first found out about the steampunk genre. I love the combination of Victorian aesthetic and futuristic technology, and it was fun to design a gun. It's also made entirely of recycled materials, found in my dads workshop, old scrap piles or even dug out of the ground.
Although I'm a bit feed up with the Steam theme nowadays, I have one or two more older works that could fall under the genre.
