Each and every Fire & Bone skull began life as a real animal skull. Using cutting-edge 3D scanners an exact copy of that skull is brought into the digital realm. It is here that the skull is scaled down to size before bringing it back into the physical world. Using a high resolution 3D printer, a miniaturized version of the original skull is created in wax. From that wax, a mold is made and from that mold Fire & Bone is able to produce a perfect miniature replica of the original animal skull in solid metal using age-old lost wax casting techniques.

Taking full advantage of exciting new technologies, like 3D scanning and 3D printing, they create incredibly accurate miniature skull replicas that are highly detailed and faithful to nature's design. Beautiful as pendants or collector's items for display, each skull is cast using traditional techniques. Both cutting edge and ancient, our skulls are a modern twist on a timeless fascination with the animal world.
