This and That

Busy days. I am working on several altered book sculptures. Double Vision, a cabinet of allusions to 1880s Gothic fiction, is done. Here are some views:

15" by 12" by 2.75"

Open Cabinet



Upper view: Short Story "The Yellow Wallpaper", Penny Dreadfuls in eyeglasses, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dracula, Sherlock Holmes.

Lower view: Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde, newspaper about Jack the Ripper.

Details of the outside edge of the cabinet:


Son Dan's wisdom tooth, painted gold, above

Skeleton head, below

I am working on another sculpture, called Book Ends, that is almost done. Several ideas in process and will post them when I get pictures.
