Stretched over a massive isthmus, nestled between the mighty Puget Sound and the beautiful Lake Washington, Seattle was destined for fame. With humble roots in logging before jumping on the Alaskan gold rush bandwagon, Seattle's location now brings in global trade markets, cruise ships, and visitors from across the Pacific. I've recreated this breathtaking part of the world in this cut paper artwork for a city known for good coffee, good music, and amazing views. And all of it, without a drop of rain.
This unique piece is intricately cut from five layers of high quality, acid-free cardstock. The top layer is a bright white, while the layers underneath are in ever-darker shades of color. Because this piece is handmade, it will differ very slightly from piece pictured here. The back is titled, signed and dated as an original piece.
The work measures 8 x 10 inches (about 20 x 25 cm), and is about 1/8" thick. It will be sent to you carefully wrapped and supported to ensure it arrives safely.
