Donya Coward — Textile Taxidermy

British Artist Donya Coward’s textile taxidermy dog heads are beautiful, humorous and exquisitely crafted. Sculpted in the style of hunting trophies, they are made with crochet and knitting along with antique and reclaimed fabrics, beads, buttons and oddments. Her artwork is about preserving the craftsmanship of these materials as much as it is about the animal imagery.  Here are some of our favorite pieces from her collection…
