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.

This wreath is about 20 inches round. It is made from the pages of a hymnal from the 1800's.

The pages are fixed to a light weight foam board backing with attached hanging hook. The whole wreath weighs less than 1.5 pounds. Because of the age and free standing position of the pages, this wreath is fragile. It is finished with a UV coating to protect it from sun and moisture, but I would not suggest hanging it outside.

Special pricing will be made if purchasing the trio.

Flowers are beautiful, but they don't last forever. Give a gift that will stand the test of time with this beautiful book sculpture. The vase is carved using one complete book. The roses and lilies use the same book and are assembled petal by petal. This vase has seven roses with lilies and "greens" filling in. It stands 14 inches tall. The book used is a collection on short stories called "School Days" published in 1947.

This piece is sold, but I'd be happy to make another for you. Typical work time is about one week plus shipping.

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.

Sweet, innocent Reagan stands with a rose for her mother. Little does she know what is lurking behind her. Made from a 1980's copy of "The Exorcist" , this is the largest sculpture I have done to date. Both figures are wired through the book for stability and finished with a UV spray to protect against sun and moisture. The devil figure stands approximately 17 inches high. The tail has a wire center and can be twisted to any position desired.

A castle rises out of the pages of this book sculpture. Complete with turrets, gate house, keep and buildings within the castle gates, this sculpture is fit for any royal family. The book used is "The Kingdom Within".

Not modeled from any castle in particular, just my favorite parts of photos I searched. I'm 99% certain this book has nothing at all to do with a castle, but I read the title and ran with the first idea that came to me.

Icarus flies between the sun and sea in this book sculpture. The scorching sun beats down on his wax wings while the waves wait below him. The figure of Icarus is an illustration from the book. Wings, waves and sun have been created by hand. The book used is "Legends of Long Ago", 1947.

This one is temporally not for sale. It will be shown at a gallery show through December. If you have an interest in purchasing it, please let me know and I will reserve the book for you until the show ends. If in the US, I should be able to get it to you before the holidays.
