Imagined Landscape of a mermaid and fairy meeting at a shore

Size:  10.75″ x 5.5″

Technique:  Paper sculpting

Description:  My client requested to create a piece of delicate art for his young daughter that included mermaid and fairies.  After some ideation, I proposed a sculptural piece reminiscent of the rose glass jar from Beauty and the Beast.  It included many hand-cut details and even secret messages for her to discover over time.  My client and his daughter loved it so much that I’ve been asked to make another custom gift for his other daughter.
