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.

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.
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.

Tinkerbell waits patiently to be let out of her jar in this book sculpture. Illustrations are taken from a 1957 version of J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan and Wendy", illustrations by Marjorie Torrey. The antique glass jar measures nearly 4 inches high. The text swirling around her reads, in part, " When a baby laughed it's first laugh, it broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies". A wonderful small gift for Peter Pan and Tinkerbell fans.
