Dogwood Flower and Fabric Butterfly Polymer Clay Sculpture with Glass Dome Display
This one of a kind handmade and hand painted polymer sculpture is titled "Evening Dogwood" and is #12 in the series. It depicts three imaginary butterflies with dogwood flower blossoms and opening buds.
This is a mixed media sculpture including, fabric, copper wire, black onyx, and polymer clay. There is a wire armature inside the fired polymer clay for support.
The last in the "Fabric Series", it is mounted on a solid oak base and covered with a removable glass dome. The fantasy butterflies are created from fabric by a special proprietary process invented by Laura Wilson. They have genuine black onyx stone bodies and the wing spots are accented with Swarovski crystal flat-back cabochons. Their heads are made from point back Swarovski crystals. The details are all hand painted with acrylic paint.
This sculpture is fragile and comes with the glass dome to cover and protect it.
It is 11.5 inches high, including the base. The glass dome is 5.5 inches and the solid oak base measures 7.5 inches across.
It took over 40 hours to complete in 2005.
