Heads up

Apart from during the occasional rendition of Hamlet, it’s not often that you really get to admire a skull. 

But admire these skulls, you certainly will. Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead festival, Crush creative director Carl Rush tasked ten designers to decorate a ceramic skull at Creative notworking event Glug.

So if you’re looking for a present for the person who has everything, why not get them a Yorick of their very own. Hurry though, the auction ends at 10.30am tomorrow.
