During the past decade, taxidermy has become a sophisticated art form. Though basic techniques have changed little, materials and styles of presentation have changed dramatically. Dimensional re-creations once sought primarily by sportsmen are now prized by private collectors, corporations, museums, conservationists and naturalists.

As a wildfowl specialist, The Bird Stuffer, Kermit Cartwright, has achieved standards of excellence in his wildfowl art. His one-of-a-kind mounts are becoming demand items in galleries and museums throughout the country. Creating from birds supplied by the collector or from The Bird Stuffer's private stock, each Signature Series is signed by the artist and encased in a beautiful, handmade wood and glass display.

If I can see an animal in its natural habitat, I can establish in my mind exactly what the bird is like and the details of its environment. If not, then I have to make a careful study of photography and specimens already mounted. I spend as much preliminary time looking at birds on location and existing mounts- wherever I can find them- as I do in the final studio work," he continues.   more....
