Constellation Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Constellation Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
I was recently contacted by a jewelry designer in Paris. She had the brilliant idea of creating a back story for all of her pieces. She asked if I could sculpt the pieces for her, leaving room to display the jewelry on the book. Best of all, the pieces would be traveling with her to Fashion Week. How can you not say yes to that?

This is the fourth book in the series. This one features a couple watching the stars. The constellation maps behind them have stars punched through. LEDs shine through the stars to really light up the sky. A shooting star earring will hang on the plastic beam running between the pages.

Check out Morphee's jewelry here: www.morphee-joaillerie.com/ and click the link there to get to her Facebook to see photos of the books with her jewelry.

All sculptures made for Morphee cannot be recreated.

Ooh, awesome! Most book sculptures I see have the book lying down. I like how you put it upright, and even more that it looks like walls with windows!

This whole set is freaking amazing.  Phenomenal design and execution, and the application is just marvelous.  I would love to see what they look like with the metalwork pieces included.

Don't feel too bad.  It was an encyclopedia from the 90's.  Glad you like it though.
