The Contemporary Pachyderm

Holding gingerly on to his mother's tail, this baby elephant follows your book collection from A to Z. Inspired by the playful styles of the savanna, artist Eric Gross creates a charming silhouette scene on your bookshelf or mantel with his beautifully detailed bookend, crafted from carbon steel with automotive paint finish. Handmade in Kentucky.

Eric Gross grew up on a small family farm, where there always seemed to be some piece of equipment in need of maintenance or repair. He developed the basic skills of metal working from his father and grandfather, spending countless hours in their old white barn, watching them work.

Eric chose to study mechanical engineering in college, hoping to put his knowledge of materials and machinery to good use. He eventually grew bored of designing widgets and decided to use his metalworking skills and equipment to create original, whimsical, and functional items for the home.

                    Comments about UncommonGoods Elephant Family Bookends:

                    From the picture I didn't expect the metal to be so thin. Expected more of a sculpture. Photo from an angle showing the thinness of the product would have been helpful and I would not have purchased if I had known the thinness of the metal.

                    Mother to be asked for children's books instead of cards and this seemed like the perfect gift idea. I also bought the elephant mom and baby night light. A nice unique gift
