Alice is stuck inside of "Drink Me" vial in this book sculpture. This antique glass jar measures nearly 4 inches high. Text from "Alice in Wonderland" swirls around Tenniel's original illustration. A wonderful small gift for any Alice lover.
Two glass ornaments hold two iconic scenes from Alice in Wonderland. Alice considers the "drink me" bottle and takes tea (or tries to) with the Mad Hatter. Made from original illustrations from the book that have been hand colored. Script at the bottom of the ornaments also taken from the Alice books.
Winnie the Pooh is on a hunt for honey! In this book sculpture, Pooh floats to the bee hive with the help of a balloon. The book used has a very fitting title, "Magic in the Air". It is a collection of children's stories.
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.
Alice chats with the Cheshire Cat in this sculpture. The book used is "The Merry Maker" copyright 1947, a collection of samples taken from well known children's stories. Alice and the cat are the original illustrations that I've water colored. SOLD

Tink has lost her temper in this book sculpture. She stomps her feet in a 4 inch, antique glass jar. Illustrations are taken from a 1957 version of J.M. Barrie's most loved work, "Peter Pan and Wendy", illustrations by Marjorie Torrey. The text the swirls around her reads, in part, "There was a faint sound, like the tinkle of bells..." A wonderful small gift for any Tinkerbell fan.

A friend recently got in touch with me about doing a Wizard of Oz book sculpture. She only wanted the ruby slippers done, in order to keep costs down. Well, she bought the book herself, and I just couldn't help myself. As fanatical as some people are about Alice in Wonderland, that's me with Oz. As a dancer, Judy Garland is right up there with Fred Astaire on my idols list. So...I kind of went crazy on this one. The scene is the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Lion carrying a sleeping Dorothy out of the deadly poppy field. Figures are original illustrations from the book that I've hand colored. The yellow brick road, which isn't very visible in this photo, is actually put together brick by brick. I did also do the ruby slippers. I'll post those next.
Alice follows the white rabbit in this miniature world. Bad from a vintage tray with glass dome, this book sculpture stands approximately 6 inches high. Flowers, tree, grasses and stone path are made from the pages of "Alice in Wonderland". The illustrations used are the Rackham illustrations.
