A one-off paper sculpture made from altered books, found materials and wire in a glass dome. This piece of book art is part of Betty's 'Living on the Edge' series - a small, paper world that teeters on the edge.

Theodora peered through her grimy windows and the mist to the new houses across the square. With their fresh paint and tidy little courtyards they looked nigh on perfect. That was how I used to be a few centuries ago she thought and sighed.
She was feeling apprehensive as, that afternoon, she was due to see a specialist about her current condition and the cracks that were beginning to show. Previously fillers had been suggested along with the possibility of a facelift and underpinning. Large works. Extensive treatments. It wasn’t so much that she minded getting old, it was all just getting a bit expensive…

This handmade book art sculpture comes presented in a glass dome - pictures provided here without the dome for clarity.

Height: 130mmm, Diameter: 120mm.
