Sculpted and hand finished by professional artist Thomas Kuebler, the skull of Frankenstein’s monster was cast in solid resin, chosen for its resemblance to actual human bone. Measuring at around 15 inches from the cranium to the wooden base, no detail was spared in recreating the unmistakable skull of one of horror’s most recognizable monsters. This skull sold at an auction for $1275.00.
After years of working in the corporate art world of toy design prototypes and bringing robots to life in the animatronics field, Thomas Kuebler opted to explore his full creative potential as a multi-media sculptor. Armed with the tools of his trade, a supportive wife and the odd inhabitants of his own personal fiction, he set forth on a mission to bring the world inside his head to life.
Kuebler’s award-winning silicone character sculptures have exhibited at venues such as The Society of Illustrators, NYC; Galeria Clave, Spain; Copro Nason Gallery, Santa Monica; The Allentown Art Museum, Pennsylvania and The Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio. Other venues include the offices of DC Comics, Guillermo del Toro’s Bleak House and private collections around the world. His sculptures have been featured in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Rue Morgue, and Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, among other publications.
Thomas Kuebler, his wife, and their canine counterparts currently reside in North Carolina.
