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.
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
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.
Before anyone says it, yes, I know I've been doing A LOT of Alice lately. This was a commission, so don't blame me!
My client wanted to add a little color to this one. I tried a few different types of pigment, but everything I used made the paper too fragile to use for the figures. I used watercolor for the flowers and leaves. I do like the contrast between the white figures and the bright flowers. I think they set each other off well.
Alice has grown too big for this ornament! Illustration and text taken are taken from a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Illustration is hand colored. The text at the bottom of the bulb is free floating and can be shaken to the desired position.
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.
In this book sculpture we catch Pandora just as she opens the forbidden box. One LED light shines out of the box. A on/off switch is also hidden inside with battery pack access under the book. Book altered is "A Book of Myths and Legends" published 1947.
