About the Artist:

Ave Rose is an LA based oddity artist, automaton maker, jewelry designer, and author. In her sculptures, Ave Rose uses clockwork, antiques, insects, bones and taxidermy ephemera in congress with motion mechanics to produce reanimated, organic robots that tend more towards rococo than science fiction. Also incorporating precious gems and metals, her creatures are whimsical amusements that practically breathe with artificial life. Ave Rose’s designer fashion & jewelry collections are created using rare & exotic materials in the same esthetic style of her sculptures.  Her work has been featured in music videos, TV shows, store front installations, and art galleries around the world.

Ethically Sourced

Except for rare instances, the specimens Ave Rose uses in her art have been naturally deceased. Do not hesitate to inquire where and how her specimens have been acquired if it is not specifically stated in the listing.

All of Ave Rose's work that features something once living is created as that creature's memorial. It is her offering as a shrine to nature in all of its power and grace. Her hope is for people to use her work as a reminder to always appreciate nature and to never take even its tiniest gifts for granted. She often incorporates recycled man-made objects with earthly specimens to show the exquisite beauty that can be experienced when there is harmony between the mechanical and the natural. Please know that Ave pours her heart into every detail as she honors each sacred being.
