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.

            These were so cool and I had pretty high expectations to begin with but they were better than I expected. Wow. They are made of metal but so classic. Beautiful lines. Great weight. Could not have been happier.

                I purchased this set of bookends mainly because I collect giraffes. These are nice but for me they are boring, I knew what they looked like because the picture is shows exactly how it is but I prefer more detail,uniqueness, however, I think most people would enjoy them. Well made.

                My 84 year old Aunt is so hard to buy for. She volunteers weekly at her local zoo, so just knew she would love these bookends, and she did.
