Pamela Dalton's Scherenschnitte have
delighted collectors worldwide for almost twenty-five years.
Her work is created in the tradition of early American paper
cutting popular in the Pennsylvania Dutch regions of this country
in the early nineteenth century.
Dalton's original designs are influenced
by popular historical themes: patriotism, biblical and religious
motifs, and scenes from rural life. Each piece is sketched freehand
by the artist and then cut by hand, so no two are exactly alike.
Each work is cut from a single piece of paper and frames in a
false grain frame. Personalized and custom pieces and unique
one-of-a-kinds (often in antique frames) are also available.
The images shown in the Gallery pages
represent a selection of many of Pamela Dalton's popular designs.
Because each piece - and frame - is made by hand, there will
be slight variations in detail.
