This is an EXAMPLE of work I have done in the past. This exact sculpture is not for sale.
This a tree completely built out of the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz. The open book is about 12X9 inches and the tree reaches about 6.5 inches in height. The book cannot be closed. There are three cut-out stars at the base of the tree. Each branch has a tiny origami bud on its tip. The tree is made of wire and lines of text cut from multiple poems in the volume. The sculpture is treated for UV and moisture, (it is not waterproof) but it is indeed a delicate object.
The book is Selected Poems 1931-2004. The poem on the tree page is "After Paradise." The non-tree page is the end of the poem "Rivers."
I think this would be a perfect wedding present or anniversary gift for the poets and/or bookish lovers in your life.
Like the design, but wish it were a different poem? Message me and let's see if I can find/create what you are looking for.

These sculptures are all one-of-kind handmade works of art. They are delicate and will vary in shape and size. Some elements of the sculpture may seem flexible or able to be slightly manipulated, but this is not recommended. The text strips are easily ripped or damaged with manipulation. No refunds will be issued for damage incurred through manipulation.
Any custom work involves as much communication with the buyer as they desire, including status reports and photos of work progress. Because of this, I cannot offer refunds on custom work.
