You Have Quite a Lovely Silhouette December 27, 2007Posted by smooregasbord in Art, Family/Home, Shopping.
I enjoy watching the various segments shown on the CBS Sunday Morning Show. A while back they did a segment on The Return of the Silhouetteand I was absolutely caught up by the classic look. A little later I saw them talked about again in a magazine, so I did a little internet search and came across the artist, Karl Johnson. His work is quite impressive and completely done by hand. So for Christmas this year, we thought it would make a wonderful gift for my mother-in-law. We had double silhouettes done of each set of grandchildren, and they turned out absolutely beautiful! Lauren, Karl’s wife, was truly a delight to work with from the beginning to the end (when I needed a last minute upgrade on my shipping). I think this is a unique way to create a family heirloom to be passed down from generation to generation…and expanded as your family grows. He also does custom orders, like full silhouettes of wedding couples and pets. If you’re pregnant, what a great idea to have your “baby bump” transferred to a silhouette.
