Several years ago my daughter-in-law, Heather – gave me a lesson in altering books. These easy and simple folds inspired both of us to more creating and upcycling.
Heather moved into sculpting; sculpting books. While living in Germany she sculpted and hung books on the many empty walls of their home.
Currently a local art gallery, Side Street Gallery, is thrilled to be showing her sculptures.
From my attic, she found a children’s science book about birds.
What about this Time Life Photography book? She added photos she had taken on vacations- Prague and Rothenburg.
Of course there was Paris –
Using a lovely gold spoon for inspiration she sculpted this sunny book.
This reminds me of a circus tent; maybe a surprise trip in the future is on my mind. This blue accented book is so unusual and marvelous.
Here is her display wall at the gallery; each sculpted book has a provenance posted with it that details the elements.
February 21, Side Street Gallery is having a juried photography show where you can see and purchase some of Heather’s recent photography. This is really special also, join us!
