I was recently contacted by a jewelry designer in Paris. She had the brilliant idea of creating a back story for all of her pieces. She asked if I could sculpt the pieces for her, leaving room to display the jewelry on the book. Best of all, the pieces would be traveling with her to Fashion Week. How can you not say yes to that?

This is the third book. The little girl is sitting in a garden, drawing a bluebird. There will be a bluebird ring placed in the nest in the tree. One of my favorites from the series. The girl's face came out perfectly and the whole sculpture worked nicely with the ring.

Check out her jewelry here: www.morphee-joaillerie.com and click the link there to get to her Facebook to see photos of the books with her jewelry.

All sculptures made for Morphee cannot be recreated.

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.

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.

So I've been working with a gentleman for a few weeks now about a commission piece. His wife loves Alice, he wants to get her a sculpture for Christmas. We'd been debating what scene would be the best to do when the light bulb FINALLY went off in my head and I remembered I'd done an Alice before. I sent him a picture and he loved it, just wanted it as an open book. SO, here she is...and I couldn't resist adding the white rabbit because, in my mind, he is seriously overlooked.

Commissions are always available. Note me or check out my Etsy shop: [link]

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.

Flowers make a beautiful gift, but they don't last long. Give a gift that will last forever with this book sculpture. The vase is carved from one complete book. The flowers are assembled petal by petal from the same book's pages. This vase hold three roses along with smaller flowers and "greens". The book used is "Excelsior", published 1955. It stands 12 inches tall.

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

It's lonely being a spy. 007 walks through "Casino Royale" in this sculpture. Not available for sale, this is a gift for a friend of mine, but I did happen to pick another Bond Book. The title is "You Only Live Twice". If anyone has an interest in commissioning a piece with it I would be glad to work with you.

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.
