This listing is for the angel wreath only.

This wreath is about 17 inches round. It is made from the pages of a hymnal from the 1800's. The angel in the center of the wreath is also made from the hymnal pages and holds a trumpet.

The pages are fixed to a light weight foam board backing with attached hanging hook. The whole wreath weighs less than 1 pound. 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.

Commissioned piece using "Madam Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert. The buyer sent me an illustration she had found picturing a woman with flowers in her hair. I used the drawing and the story line as inspiration and came up with a young woman primping in front of the mirror. The flowers are book pages which have been colored. The mirror in the background is real glass.

Show your love of music with this book sculpture. "The Joy of Music" by Bernstein has been sculpted. Each page is folded with sheet music forming the curved heart in the center. The book's black cover and bright white pages make the heart stand out and is easily matched to any decor. A perfect gift for any music lover or music teacher.

"Pride and Prejudice" commissioned piece. Done in the fashion of my previous "Gone with the Wind". P&P is one of those books that I can read over and over without ever getting tired of it. This is the first sculpt I've done of it though, I'm not sure why it's taken me so long. I'm hoping to do another version, something I haven't done before style-wise, in the near future.

Beautiful flowers rest on top of this alteration. Each flower is handmade. Each variety of flower is made from the pages of a different book, giving every variety a slightly different color from the next. There are two dozen flowers total.

The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria approach the American coast in this book sculpture. The three ships fight the choppy waves as Columbus stands on deck. Natives sit on the shore line. The book used is "A Book of Famous Explorers", 1947.

You probably can't see it from the photo, but these are some of the most detailed ships I've ever done. There's wire in the masts, so they're extra sturdy. There is also a bit of quilling around the bow of the two larger ships. Finished with a UV gloss spray to protect against moisture and time.
