Learn About Our Project:

Fire & Bone makes tiny, true-to-life, animal skull reproductions derived from high-resolution 3D scans of original specimens, carefully miniaturized in a digital process, then cast in metal using traditional techniques. Each skull can be worn or displayed on their optional wood collectors base.

Like all Fire & Bone skulls, the Arctic Fox is both a wearable pendant and a collectable miniature museum piece!
Like all Fire & Bone skulls, the Arctic Fox is both a wearable pendant and a collectable miniature museum piece!

The Arctic Fox is the 38th species to join the Fire & Bone collection! You can view and purchase all 37 other species, including Dire Wolf, Raven, Velociraptor, and many more, here.

 

We've already selected and scanned our specimen and are currently producing our molds for casting.

3D SCANNING & MINIATURIZATION 

Our process begins by digitally scanning real animal skulls. We work with a company that uses a proprietary 3D scanning process to digitally capture animal skulls in very high detail. We are thrilled with the level of detail we get from this method, which isn't possible with consumer-level 3D scanners.

We scale the piece down to a size suitable for collection or jewelry. Because we do this digitally and not manually, we retain an unprecedented amount of detail from the original skull.

To make the final pieces, we reproduce the miniature model in wax with a professional level high-resolution 3D printer. With our wax model we make a master mold which allows us to cast the skulls in any metal using traditional lost-wax casting. We work with a family owned foundry in the U.S. with decades of experience producing large production runs of small delicate pieces.

FIRE & BONE AND KICKSTARTER

We launched our very first Fire & Bone campaign on Kickstarter in 2013 and it has been an amazing way to for us to build a community, test demand for new skulls, and has given us a great platform for communicating with fans. If this campaign is successful, we will be able to keep acquiring more hard-to-get skulls for our collection and building this project together with you.

If you missed our previous campaigns, those collections are now available on our site - www.fireandbone.com. The Arctic Fox marks our 38th species, and we have more in the works!

Skulls from previous campaigns available at www.fireandbone.com

Even though we have made some great steps since we first launched – we now sell Fire & Bone through a couple world famous science museums, which is mind-blowingly cool – we are still primarily three guys who do this as a passion. Kickstarter lets us find people who share that passion.

THANKS, AND STAY TUNED!

We couldn't do this without you. Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to follow us on social media. We're working on a new collection now, so stay tuned and keep those skull suggestions coming!
