Small and Beautiful

For the cook, or anyone who loves the whimsy of a mobile, here is a one-off, original book mobile by Lisa Occhipinti. 

Lisa Occhipinti is an artist and author. She creates distinct sculptural assemblages that embrace the physical form of the book as well as the words within, utilizing all parts, from covers to pages. She also creates composite photographs embroidered with pattern that merge narrative and design. Transforming things rather than creating anew, Lisa conceptualizes her works so that they lend their own histories.
She has written and illustrated Novel Living (Abrams, 2014) a book venerating the physical book, and The Repurposed Library (Abrams, 2011), a book on transforming books into new forms. Her work has been included in Papercraft (Gestalten, 2010) and she is a contributing essayist to The Laws of Subtraction(McGraw Hill, 2013).
With a BA in fine art, Lisa has studied in France with Parsons School of Design and in Italy with The School of Visual Arts. She was a faculty member at the New Hampshire Institute of Art for five years, where she coordinated and taught their first summer abroad program at the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughn, Ireland. She has also taught at the Currier Museum of Art, Manchester NH, and the Brentwood Art Center and Craft and Folk Art Musuem both in Los Angeles CA.
Lisa has won a full fellowship from the Clowes Fund for a residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson VT and earned a residency at the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild in Woodstock NY.  Her work has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Associated Press, India Today and Australia Vogue Living. Her work is in private and corporate collections worldwide including Hilton Hotels, Prologue Films, J Crew, The Dana Farber Institute and Wheaton College Permanent Collection.
