Description

Who doesn't love tutus?? This abstract tutu is made from one of my German thrift store finds, "Classics of the Royal Ballet" by Jesse Davis - published in 1980. Its pictorial display of six popular ballets, characters and costumes were the inspiration. The original book is the diamond shaped torso of the dancer, and the tutu is sculpted from another German weeded book. Each page was rolled, handstitched into bundles and woven in wire. The tutu is attached to the book torso using wire and a floating bookshelf (included). This sculpture will be most impactful as a hanging display, but can also be displayed sitting. Hanging will require nails or Command Strips (not included).

Dimensions: L 19.5 H 10.5" D 14"

Shipping is included in the cost of book sculpture.

    I did a custom order with gallonidesigns and absolutely loved the final product! I gave her specific key words and a Van Gogh theme and she killed it. I also requested the product within a specific time period for a birthday coming up and I received the package a week early! Great service and responds immediately when I asked questions. Super nice :) I will use her in the future!

    I got a chance to see this item in person before getting it as a gift for a friend. The structured folds and defined lines were very well done and it was pleasing to see the attention to detail. These are very beautiful pieces of art there's definitely more to see once you start looking in to the art!
    I also want to commend Heather for the great packing job. Very sturdy!

Q: How are the sculptures packaged and shipped to insure good condition?
A: Boxes are created to fit sculptures. If a sculpture includes rolled pages that may collapse/smash during shipping, I fill those spaces with plastic wrap and also wrap the the sculpture in Saran. Extra space is filled with bubble wrap or lightweight packaging materials.

Q: Can I provide my own book and/or accessory for a custom sculpture?
A: Absolutely! Prior to sending me the book(s), I ask that you email me photographs and we will discuss the condition of the book to insure it is suitable to use. In some cases, I am able to complete basic restoration so that a book can still be used. Customer is responsible for shipping costs of books/accessories for custom order.

Q: If I see a sculpture that has sold, is it possible to do a custom order with the same design?
A: Yes. While a different book/materials will be used to create the sculpture, I will make every effort to make it similar in size/color/concept.
