The Purple Emperor butterfly is handmade in my workshop and would look lovely on a shelf either by itself of near a pot plant or vase of flowers.
The butterfly is approximately 11cm wide from wing tip to wing tip, 8cm from the tips of its antenna to the back of the wing and 3.5cm high.
The wings are made from mild steel sheet, the body is made from steel bar that has been turned to size and shaped to form the body and the legs and antenna are made from wire. After assembly the butterfly has been hand painted in enamel paint to create the detailed colours and patterns on the body and both sides of the wings, as can be seen from the photographs.
As every stage of the process is done by hand from the cutting and shaping of the metal, to the final hand painting, every butterfly I make is individual and slightly different in its shape colour and patter, making it special and unique.
I was inspired by the beauty of the flowers and wildlife in the gardens and woodlands near where I live and wanted to create something that showed the delicacy and vibrant colours that mother nature surrounds us with.
