Stick Your Neck Out

The journey between the covers of a good book can lead you through all kinds of unexpected places. This playful set of bookends from designer Eric Gross celebrates that spirit of adventure. Hand cut from carbon steel, it captures the silhouette of a mother giraffe reaching out to nuzzle her baby with a neck that grows longer and longer with each book you're ready to digest. 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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Giraffe Family Bookends:

    My mother loves giraffes. When I saw these bookends, I knew she had to have them. They are truly lovely and are now on her mantle displaying the books authored. They will make you smile. Note that because of the length of the underpieces, they won't work for just a few books. We solved this by putting two of each of her books between the bookends.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Giraffe Family Bookends:

      My daughter loves giraffes so these bookends were a perfect gift. They are heavy enough to hold books without sliding. Be sure to but felt spots on the bottom since they are metal and could scratch a surface. They are also a bit wide so they take up a good amount of room on the shelf. They look very cute and definitely get noticed.

          My daughter-in-law has an interest in exotic animals and also has a number of very old "show" books. This was a perfect "surprise" gift that was not on her "wish list" for Christmas.

              I sent this to my daughter for Christmas and she loved it. It was fairly priced and looks wonderful on her bookcase. This is a great present for someone who has everything.

                  It is as adorable in person as it is in the catalog. I put it on a sofa table, at eye level and every time I walk by, I am charmed. The giraffes are flatter than I expected but with a white wall background, they look great!
