buildingsby Denise Fiedler
- the story
From designing rooms to dressing them, interior designer Denise Fiedler's attraction to the art of collage began when she stumbled upon a box of vintage books and newsprint in her attic. These ephemeral fragments of literature proved inspirational for Denise, who decided to transform her attic's forgotten library into art.
To erect these monumental constructions, she carefully carves shapely silhouettes from the yellowing pages and she then assembles the cutouts into endearing pastiches that adeptly capture the look and personality of each building. These delightful depictions of some of the world's most famed clocks, towers, and skyscrapers are bound to capture the hearts and speak to the passions architecture and literature lovers alike. Handmade in San Francisco, California.

- The papers used are vintage, and while the artist makes efforts to use archival quality glues and grounds, keeping these works out of direct sunlight will enhance the longevity of the color and quality of the paper.
Each piece celebrates that which delights and is hand made and one of a kind, so each will differ slightly, having been assembled from different found antique and vintage papers, yielding unique surprises.
