Ian Childers is a ceramics professor at Mississippi University for Women who has been making and painting these ceramic skulls for about 5 years. He's been following our site for a few years now and "professed" his love for our site and our skulls.
Different designs painted upon it make each skull unique, but the addition of making each ceramic skull goes further into solidifying their unique status. My personal favorite is the grey skull with the "blood"(?) running down it's face. I hope you find more and more students each year wanting to learn more from your skull art, Ian. Thanks for submitting your great collection!
