Two roses have been made out of the pages of "The Secret Garden". They stand on a painted wooden base under a glass dome. The butterfly on the base is also made from "The Secret Garden". Dome stands approximately 9" high by 6" wide. Glass dome is removable.

I'm not sure this can be called a book alteration, but since I used left over pages from a previous alteration, I'm going to go with it.

Two sailboats cruise on calm waves. An island with palm trees sits on the opposite page. Are they coming or going? Aloha means both hello and goodbye, you know. A parrot patiently watches to find out.

The book altered in this piece is "Aloha Means Goodbye" by Naomi A. Hintze, published in 1972.

This piece was featured in the juried fine craft show, Crafted, at Studio B in Boyertown, PA.

These go along with the Wizard Of Oz book sculpture. They were a commission piece. Originally, the client only wanted the slippers done, but I went a little crazy and did a whole scene. But, as promised, did the slippers as well.

Commissioned piece. This one was a pain, but I'm so excited with the way it came out! The tentacles are made the same way as I make the necks of my dragons. Simple, but doing eight of them was grueling. The Nautilus...well, I think I probably made it four or five times before I finally figured out how to do it right. So, yeah, pain in the butt, but a good learning process. Definitely learned a new trick or two while making this one.

Sinbad's ship sails through this book sculpture. The book used is a 1947 edition of "Tales of Adventure", featuring Sinbad's fifth voyage as he meets with the Rocs. The ship has been modeled after illustrations found in the story.

SOLD

Side note, yes, I'm very aware this is very close to my original pirate ship. But, that first one got a lot of attention and sold very quickly to a friend, so I figured I'd give it another go. I've tried to keep true to the story with the design of the ship and not go too "piratey".

Two angels take flight in this book alteration. With ruffled dresses, layered wings and curled hair, they pop from the pages holding hymnals of their own. The book altered is a collection of spiritual songs for the organ, published in 1892.
