I seriously love the RISD nature lab!!! Best place ever for EVERYTHING creepy, crawly and taxidermy. The nature lab had such a huge impact on me (as you can probably tell from my jewelry). Inside the nature lab is where I met dried fish and the love affair began! As part of an assignment freshman year I sketched little dried angel fish from the Nature Lab and was forever mesmerized by their beauty. I also had taken to experimenting with resin freshman year. I tried putting my goldfish that died in resin, only it was frozen and boiled (and the dorms had to be cleared out from the toxic fumes..oops!) I had so much to learn!
Anyways, Check out this great video ETSY did on the Rhode Island School of Design nature lab.
