As I list these it is late summer and my flowers are covered with butterflies everyday but I know winter is coming and they will fly away so I made some that won't. These 3 butterflies are made from this great plum/purple swirly opaque glass which I mounted on this great piece of live edge oak wood. I added wire legs, eyes and antenna to each butterfly and finished them with a black patina. I have added a piece of jute for easy hanging
The total height measures 16 3/4 inches with the hanging cord. The wood with butterflies overhanging measures 12 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches wide by over 2 1/2 inches deep. The larger butterflies measures 2 inches wide by about 2 1/2 inches long.
A bit about my glass work. I usually hand draw all my own patterns. I choose each piece of glass based on the look I'm after. I like glass with ripples, streaks and bubbles because of the interest it creates in the finished piece. I then hand cut and grind each piece to shape then assembled them using the Tiffany method with copper foil applied to all edges, burnished and then soldered. Most of my pieces have black patina applied because it contrasts so well with the glass but I have a few with copper and silver. I try very hard not to have a lot of waste glass because of this you will often find various wall art pieces and mosaics in my shop.
My pieces are designed to be used inside.
It would also make a great gift.
