A life sized study of two British Butterflies; a Peacock and a Small Tortoiseshell.
The wings have been cut from book and magazine pages and hand embroidered to create the detailed patterns. Their bodies are carved from rolls of paper.
The frames are handmade for each display from solid wood and glass. This particular frame has been made from Ash and then oiled. It measures 15cm x 20cm and has a wire on the back so it will hang from a wall or can stand on a shelf or mantelpiece.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
