Butterflies were one of the first things I started creating in my studio and I have always been drawn to large super detailed butterflies with tons of details created from burning holes, and grinding intricate coloring patterns. But since the beginning I have had galleries asking for smaller more simple less expensive butterflies.
So finally I decided to take some time and design some smaller more affordable options that still satisfied me in the sense that they were detailed and beautiful. I don't like sending stuff out unless it feels complete and well made to me. I ended up with 7 different wing designs based on real butterflies but instead of grinding intricate patterns and welding wing veins and burning whole designs I decided to keep the coloring more simple on these with only one coloring pass with my torches. So the coloring is not related to the wing design of the actual butterfly but it is a fun option for folks and I enjoy coming up with variations on coloring. So everyone wins! I hope you enjoy the collection!
These metal butterfly sculptures are wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and are all safe to be kept outdoors!
