VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE
A Feline Treasure carved from 255 pages of:
James Braithwaite by WHG Kingston
These whimsical paper sculptures are handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall) It is perfect for the book or cat lover amongst us! The title is chosen because the word ‘charming’ is found on the cat!
Please excuse my photography, it is not my forte so i use a generic styled photo of a past sculpture I have photographed to show it inside a glass cloche and then this particular listing refers to the photos shot on the black background – this is the detail of the actual sculpture you will get. This particular one is carved from a really thick book! Reflections are just so hard to control on the glass and in my busy studio it takes ages to get rid of them! But you’ll get the idea!
When I make the Secret Vintage Booksafes I try not to waste any of the paper i carve out and re-use it to make these endearing three dimensional book sculptures for the bookish amongst us. They are a delightfully dimensional addition to bookshelves and mantles and great gifts for the book lovers. Not one is the same and all have an individuality defined by their paper adornments or the back page on their reverse.
All the information of the book that they were carved from is on a label on the base so you will always have the details kept with it.
