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.

Made from the pages of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Wild Geese", these brother swans carry Princess Elise to safety. In the story, the children's evil stepmother decides they are a hindrance, so she turns the brothers into swans, only regaining their human form at night, and sends Elise away. Years later, Elise and her brothers reunite. She weaves a net and her brothers carry her across the ocean. Once safe, Elise releases the brothers from the spell by taking a vow of silence and weaving magic shirts made from nettles and they live happily ever after. The princess is an illustration from the book fitted with a paper dress. Each swan is suspended with a clear thread. The mobile hangs approximately 24" long and 12" wide. It weighs less than one pound.

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.

Another remake from a previous piece. The clock mechanism is wired through the last 200 or so pages. The back cover has been cut for easy battery changes and adjustment of time. The "gears" are made from layers of pages that have been cut and fixed into place. Again, I'm happier with the remake than the first. This one is a bit cleaner. Amazing how just a year can change how you work.

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".

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.

Picture yourself sitting at the shore with this book sculpture. No matter the season, this sculpture will remind you of the warm sun and calming waves of the coast. Waves and adirondack chairs are made from the pages of "Gifts from the Sea". The shells are original illustrations from the book.
