Some deliciously dark thoughts are coming out of the head of artist Stephanie Metz. She meticulously constructs teddy bear skulls using felted wool. In her artist statement she describes the skulls as “… an elegant structural armature for life, something that reveals historical clues and hints at individual stories that may never be told. It is tangible evidence of a life lived—not just the death at the end of a life. I forget that for many people the skull mainly symbolizes tragedy and death.”
A playfully bleak take on a modern icon.
