Purple butterfly on Driftwood. Butterfly is cut fro Gourd shards and mounted on driftwood. Butterfly collectors this is for you.


Butterflies have always had a special place in my heart. Many of my art pieces will include butterflies either painted or sculpted out of gourd shards like this one. I handcraft each piece by cutting the wings out of gourd shards. They are hand drawn on the gourd according to the unique shape or curve of the gourd. This gives the wings dimension. Veins are then burnt into the wings with a pyrography tool and dyed to create the coloring. The dye used is transparent allowing the natural mottling of the gourd to show through. The body is also handcrafted.
Each and every one of my pieces are one of a kind, as no two wing shapes are identical and each piece of driftwood is unique and selected to compliment the butterfly
This pieces measures from the tip of the driftwood approximately 6" square. The actual butterfly measures from tip to tip 5" and is about 3 1/2" long.

Butterfly collectors would love to include this in their collection. Some people identify a butterfly with a loved one and this would make a thoughtful memorial gift.
