This is an example of a sculpture I have made in the past. I can recreate this for you, or design something exactly as you'd like.
This Little Reader is based loosely on my Dad, who never reads one book at a time. He is wearing tiny spectacles and a tie, and reading two books, one in hand, one held open on his leg. He is about 3 inches tall, and 5 inches long. He will sit independently on your bookshelf with his ankles crossed.
I have spun this Little Reader completely out of the book "War and Peace" by Tolstoy. He has been treated for UV exposure and moisture, but he is not waterproof. He is indeed a delicate object.
Custom work is really exciting to me. If you like this sculpture, but wish it were different, made from a different book or wearing different clothes, glasses, etc, please message me and let's design 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.
Domestic shipping will go out through FedEx or USPS and will having tracking information provided. All packages are insured.
International shipping will be processed through USPS
There may be a fee affiliated with customs for international orders. This is not prepaid and is the buyer's responsibility in their respective country.
I will gladly refund payment for any sculpture that arrives damaged do to insufficient packaging. Each package is carefully wrapped to ensure safe transit and inside are detailed instructions for how to remove the sculpture from the wrappings. Please notify me within 2 business days of any damage incurred in shipping, with a picture of the damage and the box in which it arrived.
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.
