People tell me it is truly original to have a papier mache sculpture on your wall.
The 3D images create a feeling of space and distance. And, as we all have limited space on our mantel or sideboard, this is a great idea for decor.
By commissioning a papier mache piece, you can choose your own colours, shape, subject matter & size to fit where ever you want. For far less than a painting, you can have a papier mache sculpture that is more original, more colourful, and definitely more eye-catching.
Papier mache wall hangings provide a genuine work of art for your home. My house is a cornucopia of colour and life with several of my papier mache pieces proudly hung up.
Most of the examples shown below are all papier mache wall plaques and sculptures that have been previously sold.
I am more than happy to take commissions for similar papier mache works personalised to your requirement. I have given a price guide as an indication of cost. The actual price will depend on the details of the commission.
This wacky and vibrant papier mache vase is wall mounted in a corner making a focal point for the room.
The owner had some lovely paper flowers but nowhere to display them. I came up with this vase idea as a bestial version of the cornucopia (complete with fins ).
I was inspired by the Alebrije Mexican sculpture technique and lovely paint details found in South America..
Dimensions: 90cm height x 25cm wide x 16cm depth

I created the papier mache Diver as a birthday present for someone who had spent many holidays diving in the Maldives and needed an every day reminder of his favourite past time. A great diversion from his homework!
Dimensions: 14cm height x 35cm width
|On the Rocks
On the Rocks was created after a particularly windy visit to Selsey Bill in West Sussex. It features actual driftwood and forms part of a series of papier mache fishing pictures. The boat is tied on with real rope found on the beach and the fish bobs up and down on a bendy wire. The detail of the oilskin and sou'wester is based on accurate research. I wanted to conjure up holidays as a child down by the seaside. This could be memories from a long forgotten era or a reminder of your holiday last year. Either way, those who love the familiar coastal past times, will find this a friendly reminder of salty escapades.
Dimensions: 30cm height x 30 cm width
Flying Geese was a commission I did for the chimney breasts of a fireplace of an early Victorian artisan's dwelling called "Goose Cottage".
I wanted to make a rather tasteful update of the old 3 geese flying on the wall! The colours are all muted to fade into the beauty of the sea worn wood.
Dimensions: 40cm height x 8cm wide each
|Violet Haze Beneath the Waves
Dimensions: 22 cm x 30 cm
|Caught in a Sivery Thread
Here are two purple fish, one mounted on driftwood, one caught in a net.
"Caught" was inspired by the 60's versions of winding string and cotton around nails to make a picture & I used a fine silver cotton to weave the fishing net on nails.
Dimensions: 35cm height x 40cm width
I am only too happy to work from a photo of some special place you know or love. Why not commission your own or your child's favourite place?
