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.

I've had my eye on this for a few months and I finally purchased it. I love it even more than I thought I would. It just makes me smile.

Packaging was fantastic - no way it was going to get damaged en route. The product is sturdy and unlike anything I've ever seen. I've already received compliments on it, too.

LOVE IT!

The quality of these bookends is very poor. They are made of very light gauge stamped steel and I doubt they would hold up even a medium size book. And for $65, they should be much more substantial. This is $12 to $15 item at best. Nice idea but really poor execution.

                          The bookends are beautiful! They are helpfully designed with a tab that sits under the books to create more stability. They are light weight, but durable.
