Reid Peppard, working under the moniker RP/Encore, creates bespoke ethical taxidermy artworks and jewellery based on intricate casts of the teeth, bones and organs of the animals she works with.
The pieces created are rich in narrative and beautifully conceived, designed to not only adorn, but to foster debate and spark conversation about the things we wear, why we wear them and where they come from.
The London based studio was started in 2009 by Peppard, whose fascination with taxidermy led her to study the craft under a master taxidermist in Yorkshire England, and moved to Los Angeles California in 2013.
