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.

“I try to design items that I would want in my own home or office. I think about things I'd love to have that don't exist and try to breathe life into those concepts.”

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.

    This was a gift for my daughter's 30th birthday! As she has gone through life, my advise has always been..."How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" Perfect example with the Momma elephant leading the baby...love it!

                      I love elephants and books, so this was a no-branier for me. I also bought one for my daughter and her husband, whom are both PhDs and thought they could use it on their bookshelf; however, my daughter wants to put in her new baby's room, which I love!
