A free-standing, one- off sculpture made from driftwood and repurposed, damaged books. The story:

When Botolph had nestled himself on the top of Mount Wearing he hadn’t considered the precarious nature of the site. Not for a minute. What he had considered was the view. And only the view. His neighbours had had a similar approach to choosing a location and now the three of them stood looking out and over to the uninhabited islands across the strait wondering if their erosion was less, their view as good and their grass greener…

“We’re as ok as we need to be,” maintained Botolph tapping away at his keyboard. He shifted his weight backwards, creaking as he went and put in his order for some more substantial underpinning jacks and a dozen rolls of duct tape…

This original piece of book art measures 190mm high (inc. birds) x 120mm long x 50mm deep.

As the sculpture ages the paper may yellow slightly. Do not stand in direct sunlight.

Commission Work from Betty Pepper

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.

Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
