Mixed Media Art Assemblage Box - A Memory Orchard with Vintage Book Cover, Optical Lenses, and Cut Up Poetry

Description

This is an original one of a kind mixed media assemblage art box just for you. This memory orchard is built out of carefully selected vintage elements, and there's plenty of room for you to link your own interpretations and stories of memories to this soulful piece.


- 19,7x12,5x2cm / 7.8"x4.9"x0.8"
- ready to hang on you wall

You're special and you value special things in your life, so, I always pay extra attention to picking out the perfect materials for each collage project. This assemblage box was made with a vintage book cover, some metal findings, old optical lenses, and cut up vintage book illustrations and texts. The text framed behind the lenses reads "a memory orchard" on the left and the right side says "my dear / go beyond daylight / embrace / the evening".


Tiny details are always charming: The background of the recessed area with the flower illustration is made out of old book spines - at the bottom left corner you can just read the gilt word 'Pearl'. At the bottom edge of the assemblage there's a line of bent needles, reminiscent of asemic writing. They are in fact extremely old pins found from the foreshore of the river Thames: bent and twisted, probably by both people long, long gone, and the tides and pebbles of the river.



The collage rests atop a box built from scratch and it has a string from which you can hang the piece on your wall. No trip to the framer necessary!


The assemblage will be shipped beautifully and securely wrapped ready for gifting or for treating yourself to something extra special.

FAQs

I don’t currently make any custom order books, and it’s not really something I expect to change any time in the near future. My Aspergers has the most effect on my time and stress management skills (and sadly I find all sorts of negotiation extremely stressfull, even if it’s with nice people about nice matters), and I’ve simply found it’s best for my health to work at my own pace. This way I can always guarantee the high quality of my work I hold so important. Nothing is designed or finished in a rush, so you can trust you’re always getting the best product possible.
Free gift wrapping!

Your order will always arrive gift wrapped in a nice, minimalistic manner, all ready for gifting, or for treating yourself to something special. I also include in my orders a mini bio, as well as a small info about the history of Coptic bindings if your order includes one.

If your order is a gift to someone, I'm happy to include a small note from you to the recipient at no extra cost! Just leave me a message about it during checkout, and I'll take care of it.
