Book sculpture, book art, literature, paper sculpture, Harry Potter, nursery decor, Chamber of Secrets, Whomping Willow, repurposed book
This is an EXAMPLE of a custom order I made. This exact sculpture is not for sale, (it currently lives in Kentucky!) This sculpture is Harry Potter and Ron Weasley after crash landing into the Whomping Tree. The sculpture is made entirely out of the books Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The cut out in the book cover gives a peek into the scene from which the design was inspired.
I would love to work with you on a design. I am a bookseller and can order pretty much any book in print to work with. Illustrated books, even sparsely, like Harry Potter, allow for some flexibility in inclusion of characters. Pricing depends on the costs of the books (I get a great discount on books) and the scope of the design. A multi-book, large sculpture like this, with multiple sculpture elements (tree, car, tiny characters) would begin at $350 with cost of books added on. Custom work really excites me and I will update you through every step of my process. Message me and let's dream up something together!
Work commences upon payment and most sculptures can be completed within 3-4 weeks (often sooner!) depending on the individual orders. Holiday time frames will vary, according to my work load.

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.
