E. E. Cummings
This book carving is completely one of a kind. I will not repeat images. What you see are the actual pages in the book. My process is to take away pages or portions of pages. This is all done by hand...xacto blades, tweezer and my glasses.
The outside of the book is bound (glued) shut so that it is one solid piece. The cover is free to open and close.
This carving is framed without glass so that the viewer can see the actual spine of the book. The image is of flowers that are the focus of the exposed poem (top/center.)
15” x 18” x 3”
This piece is currently being displayed at RedClay Ciderworks in Charlotte, NC. If you purchase it, I kindly request that you allow it to be displayed for the remainder of September as I am the featured artist of the month in their tap house. Cheers!
