- 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 construct this charming outline of iconic shades, she carefully carves shapely silhouettes from the yellowing pages and she then assembles the cutouts into endearing pastiches that adeptly capture the shape of summertime specs. Evocative of beaches, vacations and wistful, sprawling days spent in the sun, Denise's delightful depiction of this summertime fashion necessity brings a bit of this laidback season to your home year-round. Handmade in San Francisco, California.
- Item ID
- Made from
- glass, pine wood, archival paste, vintage and antique papers, 100% archival cotton board
- Print size: 8.75" L x 10.75" W x .625" D
- 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.
