Remember in Grade five when you grew sugar crystals with your class and it was the coolest thing you had ever seen? You turned sugar water and string into something edible that looked like jewelry. It was practically sorcery! Sorry, but artist Tyler Thrasher has blown that little elementary science experiment out of the water with his amazing crystallized works of art. He’s not playing around with sugar and string; Tyler grows crystalline structures on animal skeletons, insects and other little bits and bobbles from nature and they are beau-ti-ful.

Each of his pieces is totally unique with chemical crystals grown over a few weeks until the object looks like some sort of mystical fantasy fairy ornament. They’re a little creepy when you think about it too hard, but they’re also the prettiest dead things we’ve ever seen. Not that we spend a lot of time looking at dead things, but you know what we mean.

Have a look at some of our favourite pieces. And if you like what you see, buy one (or two or three) and follow Tyler so you never miss out on seeing new pieces.

Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in the making of these masterpieces. Also, before you ask, no, he doesn’t do human skeletons. Bummer.
