MIDDLE C

This lovely set of 5 keys is actually framed with keys! The frame you see here was made from the parts of the keys that are normally unseen. Flanges and letup buttons cover the seams, and the whole is mounted onto a piece of wood cut from the piano case to form a unique presentation of piano art. The keys used in this piece are yellowed with age, but they are not made with ivory.

This item is perfect for any musician or lover of music. Buy it for yourself or as a gift for the valued musician in your life. These pieces make excellent gifts for parents, children, students, teachers, choir directors, band/orchestra conductors, or just someone who loves and appreciates music. It also works well when combined with other piano art to form an ensemble.

Personalization is available for a $10 extra charge. Please select "Personalized" in the options, and message me with what you would like on the ivory plate. The example shown is an ivory keytop tail, and as you can see, it can hold quite a bit of information. I can work with you and create samples with your information before you make your purchase, to be sure you will be satisfied with the end result.

Gift wrapping is available at no extra charge.

NOTE ABOUT UPCYCLING: Because I use discarded pianos, many of which are 50-100 years old, each piece by nature will have some minor defects and show some signs of "wear and tear." They may also appear somewhat dirty, despite my knuckle-scraping efforts to get them clean. (Solid wood pieces get a sink bath, but felt pieces can only be scrubbed with a dry wire or nylon brush.) Not only that, but each piece varies slightly from the next, making your purchase a one-of-a-kind. Any parts that are not indigenous to the piano are purchased new; only the piano parts are upcycled.

NOTE ABOUT IVORY: Some of my piano key creations are made with genuine ivory keys. I do not promote the modern-day harvesting of ivory, and I had nothing to do with the choice of material used to make the keys; however, it seems honorable to the animals who contributed a part of themselves that we preserve their contribution in the form of art rather than letting it go to waste in a landfill. If the use of ivory offends you, please let me know and I'll make sure that the item you receive is made with a synthetic substitute. Conversely, if you prefer ivory, please tell me, and that's what I'll send you. Special orders may take 1-2 weeks to fill, but I'll let you know right away if there will be a delay in sending your order.

    Working with Angela on this customized "Middle C" gift made it feel special and from the heart. She happily answered my questions, and worked with me and my ideas!

    It was a gift for my husband for our anniversary. It was made of two pianos (like the two of us), 14 pieces (for our 14th anniversary), and with ivory keys (the traditional gift).

    It was definitely much easier than breaking down a piano to make something myself... which I was strongly considering! He really likes it, and was impressed that I was able to give the traditional (yet now unconventional) gift! Thanks so much!
