Naturally shed deer antler is intricately woven together and joined tip to tip to craft this statement-making wall piece. The antlers are joined together tip to tip using what the artist calls magic–a labor of love and time along with minute attention to detail and respect for the natural material. When guests see this piece in your home, that’s exactly what they will notice–immaculate finish, a naturalist’s sense of respect for the organic origin of the horn, and acknowledgement of the artistry it took to realize this creation from start to finish. Rivett’s unique perspective on using recycled materials is evident in this wall hanging. Made from deer antlers that have been bonded and fused, his works have been featured in “Mountain Living,” “Big Sky Journal,” “Cowboys and Indians,” “The Jackson Hole Scout Guide,” “Mosaic,” and “307 Magazine.” He has worked with interior designers and architects in lighting design and sculpture. Shawn is based in Casper, WY where some of his resources come from his family’s steel and recycling yard.
