The jewellery designer- Xiangkun Yin (2012) suggested that, ’ Bones support life and, when the body decays, they’re the only proof of the animal’s physical existence.’ Thus I will mainly use the form of animals’ bones. In the first step, in order to understand the structure of skeleton, I will trying to collect many kinds of bones of different animals. However, for those invertebrates, I will collect some parts of them, like fur, shell and so on.
1. Collect and preserve Animal Skeletons
Firstly, I will collect some animals’ remains from the city or buy them at the supermarket, like fish, chicken and so on. And then, removing bones from their body.
2. Clean bones
Place bones in the boiling water for five to 10 minutes until the bones are completely clean.
