What is gardening perfection? Their lives are so short. They arrive for only a matter of weeks, eating our gardens, destroying our trees, making holes in everything we see. They are beautiful and destructive, and also essential if we want the end result: lovely, graceful butterflies filling our gardens with color and life.

 

This is the third and final variation of my Future Butterfly series.

    In this variation of the "Future Butterfly" series the focus was on creating color and letting the finish of the beads themselves add the light.

    The artwork is made using Miyuki Delicas in a variety of colors, as well as other Miyuki beads providing the variation in surfaces and textures. The beads are of different sizes, thus providing depth and texture naturally, depending on the type of bead used. Each bead is individually placed by the artist, Katharine Claringbould.

    As part of her recycling efforts, Katharine rescued the frame from a second-hand store and gave it new life. The frame is beaded and is ready and safe to hang. The back has been covered so that dust etc. cannot enter the back of the artwork.

    Both the artwork and frame exterior are sealed, so they are safe to touch and handle.
