Each month in 2017 we are creating a single stem flower or plant. This month it’s Holly! They come with their own base (the base unscrews from the stem), or you can purchase a vase and collect them all. We will design them one at a time, but they will be all a similar size so you can fill your vase if you wish.
We will be creating just 20 of each. They are numbered and marked with a “G.” They are the perfect size for desktop, an entryway table or on a mantle.
We created this lovely butterfly from reclaimed metal. The metal we used is from weathered steel. We hand draw the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. We then hand hammer and weld it into shape.
The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. This piece can be placed inside or out. Each moth will have subtle variations. They are cut by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences.
Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
