Interior Design and Taxidermy

Interior design and taxidermy go together like peanut butter and jelly.

The main idea here is that taxidermy is art. Plain and simple as that and good art always goes up in price just like any other commodity does. The main thing here is good taxidermy. Not some critter that dosen’t even look like the right species but great taxidermy that makes you look twice at it to make sure its not breathing.

To capture your imagination by placing you at the scene of the mount. May it be a scene of a Mt. Lion attacking prey or just kicked back relaxing on a log with it’s feet dangling. Or a shoulder wall mount that follows you with it’s eyes as you walk across the room. Whatever the pose, it must be great.

Some people are hung up on how it died, they want them to exit this world like a scene from Disney where it will lay down as the sun sets and peacefully go. Hate to burst their bubble but in the wild, all animals die a violet death , they are killed by predators, they go from diseases, they break bones, they are ran over and so on. Only in the human world do we and pets go peacefully cuz of the drugs it is given. So when people ask me how they went, I tell then a hunter took them with one shot and they never hear the shot for they were gone before they hit the ground and in the real world, that is all you can ask for, cuz they never felt any pain.And everything was utilized by the hunter and family and also the predators.

The best place to start to look for the great taxidermist are by looking at the true professionals that run successful studio’s, by looking at the piece of art that they have created, by what the references are saying about them, look local but the best is to look on the web to see the one’s hidden away in the small towns across America. Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC is one of this studio’s. They are true professionals in every sense of the word. They have many item in stock already completed and ready to ship. But if the client wants something different, a one of a kind art piece then Capp’s can make up whatever they want for the house,shop ,etc.. They will create a scene they will be the centerpiece of the room or rooms. Whatever the mind can think of ,in most times can be created. Anything from a bear running through water with a fish dangling from it mouth to a deer jumping a fence with a pheasant flushing up in fright to a elephant charging( better have one big room for that one) and so on.

The interior designers client must think outside the box to have a really great piece of taxidermy art. Be open minded and if you are worried about what sirtn friends are going to think, then maybe they are not real friends and are only followers on the ”in crowd”.

The best is to just look around, call and visit the professional taxidermy studio’s like Capp’s and not the one’s that only do this part time cuz they have a real job ( that just kills me for at my studio, I work 40 to 60 hours a week  and that is why my art looks like it does-like the real animal, bird or fish that it is subost to ) and that is why their work looks like it does, it might be cheaper to purchase but just remember that for all the years you have to look at it..

The main thing here is to be picky and go for what you want and not what you think others may think……Have fun.
