This handmade Book Sculpture is titled Saucy!
She is carved from 186 pages of a:
1986 Edition of Watership Down
By Richard Adams
You might ask why? – sometimes I do! Book spiralling works best with symmetrical shapes and how well known is this shape! It has never ceased to amaze me how much some people love sauce! Sauce on everything – so this may be a niche subject but!
Gift it to your saucy friend!
These whimsical paper sculptures are handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. I have taken the glass dome off to show the detail and because the reflection is hard for me to shoot in the chaos of my studio so please forgive me. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall)
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.
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.
