VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE
A Nest Egg created from 828 pages of:
The Summer Garden by Paulina Simons
This whimsical paper sculpture is handmade and captured inside a large glass cloche. (The cloche base measures 19cm in diameter and the glass and base overall is 31cm tall)
It is perfect for bird lovers, good eggs and will look perfect in your nest egg. A beautiful one-off dimensional sculpture to adorn your library shelves.
These birds are from a selection of Australian honey eaters and song birds. The nest was found blown out of a tree in Arlington Park, Dulwich Hill.
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.
