Paisley Butterfly Sculpture

Paisley Butterfly Sculpture

Handcrafted Copper and Cholla Cactus Wood Butterfly Sculpture on Maple Base; approximately 21-3/4" high, base is approximately 4" x 7-1/4". Butterfly is hand cut with paisley wings, forged from top quality copper stock. Being a child of the Sixties, I never outgrew some of the fashions. The flower is unpolished, the heat from soldering accelerated the oxidation process crating a very nice patina.  The flower is a bit fanciful, it looks like a poppy with a rose stem to me. But then, I never really saw a paisley butterfly either.

I am having a great time creating these sculptures. New ideas are coming faster than I can make them; dragonflies, bees, hummingbirds, and more.

Meanwhile my 25% Off Jewelry continues on Etsy
