The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of them.
Butterfly Gardening I---now showing at the South Jordan Library
I made this piece for an earth friendly recycling contest. The finished piece is roughly 12" x 15 1/2 ". The butterfly was created from pressed flowers which are glued to a pane of glass with another pane on top. At the top of the piece is a rusted rake head which goes down behind the glass panes and becomes the butterfly's body. Two strings of barbed wire run along the sides of the butterfly which tie the piece together. Shards from a broken clay pot have been glued to the frame in mosaic fashion. You can now see Butterfly Gardening I at Whitmore Library (downstairs) through the end of February. It will then go to South Jordan Library - Mar - Apr, Tyler Library - May - June, and Bingham Creek Library - Jul - Aug 2010.
