This is an EXAMPLE of sculpture I have made and sold in the past. This particular sculpture is not for sale (she currently lives in Massachusetts!) This little book person was designed as a law school graduation present for a Harry Potter fan. I worked closely with the gift-giver to add elements representing the tremendous studious effort of the grad, including miniature books and pencils and a legal pad with notes. She was spun out of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and mounted on an antique book.
She has been treated with a sealant for moisture (not waterproof) and UV, but she is still a delicate thing.
The sculpture I will make for you can be spun of the book of your choice. I am a bookseller and have access to most books in print at a great discount. A sculpture like this, with a book base and other sculptural elements like the miniature tableau would start with a base price with cost of books added on. Work usually takes about 3-4 weeks before shipping, depending on my current queue, but sometimes pieces can be expedited. Custom work really excites me and if desired, I will update you every step of my process. 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.
