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.

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:

      I LOVE this!! It was the perfect gift to reflect on my Mother and my recent trip to S. Africa. Giraffes are one of our favs and the theme couldn't have been more appropriate. Uncommon Goods is usually my first go to for finding the perfect gift! Their selection is ecclectic and I truly appreciate that many of the choices aren't mass produced 'in China!'

            one perfect gift for our anniversary

            Comments about UncommonGoods Giraffe Family Bookends:

            We recently had the opportunity to visit the Lion Habitat in Henderson Nevada. My wife loves lions and tigers but while there she met Ozzie, a young giraffe who leaned over a fence for her to feed, and fell in absolute love. Browsing through the Uncommon Goods website for an "unique gift" I stumbled across Eric Gross's product called Giraffe Family Bookends. It so reminded me of our visit with Ozzie that I immediately purchased it for my wife. Needless to say she cried when she opened it. It is now on our kitchen counter supporting her favorite cookbooks. Another fun memory of our lives together.

            She never thought there would be so many areas in her home that this could be utilized. She is thrilled and I love to see them when I visit.
