Two glass ornaments hold two iconic scenes from Alice in Wonderland. Alice considers the "drink me" bottle and takes tea (or tries to) with the Mad Hatter. Made from original illustrations from the book that have been hand colored. Script at the bottom of the ornaments also taken from the Alice books.
Alice follows the white rabbit in this miniature world. Bad from a vintage tray with glass dome, this book sculpture stands approximately 6 inches high. Flowers, tree, grasses and stone path are made from the pages of "Alice in Wonderland". The illustrations used are the Rackham illustrations.
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.

Finally finished this little guy. Hooray for stumbling upon EXACTLY what you needed at an antique sale! I'm going to give this one to my husband's grandmother. She's a bird lover but not mobile enough to get out too much anymore. Hoping he cheers her up a bit!
Dorothy brings her friends along on this ride! Made from the pages of "The Wizard of Oz" this hot air balloon is ready to take off. Balloon is 8" in diameter, complete with bunting and woven basket. The illustration is original to the book used, hand colored. Ready for hanging with attached wire hook.
I don't usually post book WIPs, but I really like this little guy. He is the old man from "The Fisherman and the Sea". Probably my most detailed person yet. Separate forehead, eyelids, eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, beard, mustache, and of course ears. And that fishing pole was really fun to make. I'm interested to see how the wire and paper look together in the sculpture. More to come...just waiting for the glue to dry...
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.
