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]
Alice is stuck inside of "Drink Me" vial in this book sculpture. This antique glass jar measures nearly 4 inches high. Text from "Alice in Wonderland" swirls around Tenniel's original illustration. A wonderful small gift for any Alice lover.
Alice is attacked by the Queen's Cards as she stands trial in this book sculpture. Made from a Dutch copy of "Alice in Wonderland" with the Rackham illustrations. Available for sale: [link] My shop: [link]
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.
Before anyone says it, yes, I know I've been doing A LOT of Alice lately. This was a commission, so don't blame me!
My client wanted to add a little color to this one. I tried a few different types of pigment, but everything I used made the paper too fragile to use for the figures. I used watercolor for the flowers and leaves. I do like the contrast between the white figures and the bright flowers. I think they set each other off well.
Peter will soar on your tree inside this ornament. Made from the pages of Peter Pan, Peter and Tink sit inside of this ornament with text from the book in the bottom of the bulb. Text is free floating and can be gently shaken to the position desired.
Rhea stands outside of her hut clutching the Pink Bend. Her mutie cat and serpent familiars lurk nearby.
More detailed pictures will be posted.
Commissioned piece made from the 6th book in Steven King's "Dark Tower" series. The crystal ball and fire place are both lit with colored LED lights. Most certainly my most challenging and time consuming sculpture to date but I am extremely happy with he way it turned out.
If you haven't read the Dark Tower series, DO IT. If you're a King fan, you understand how all of his stories are interwoven and I believe they tie into this series more than any other. You simply won't get everything King has to offer without reading them.
Alice has grown too big for this ornament! Illustration and text taken are taken from a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Illustration is hand colored. The text at the bottom of the bulb is free floating and can be shaken to the desired position.
A set of four glass ornaments. Each ornament contains the sheet music for four different Christmas carols. The carols include "Carol Around the Christmas Tree", "Joy to the World", "Christmas Time", and "Shall We Have a Christmas Tree?". All sheet music dates from 1879.
