Plaster Casting: Vertebrae

I've recently been creating molds using sodium alginate 
(the same stuff they use at the dentist to make a mold of your teeth)
and making plaster casts of various objects.
Here are a bunch of casts of small animal vertebrae, freshly out of their molds.
I'm still trying to figure out an interesting way to mount them for display.

Screen Printed Pillow Covers: Nests and Cells

Some more screen printed pillow covers.
Both screens were made using the drawing fluid/screen filler method.
Inspired by birds' nests and cells, I wanted the designs to feel organic, 
kind of like something you might find in nature.
