Butterfly Obsession

I am clearly developing a butterfly obsession, so much so it is becoming all too clear and present in my ceramic work.

I couldn't be happier with this, they are beautiful creatures and I love them. We have loads in the garden at the moment - more than I have ever seen and they flutter about so gracefully. I have tried to get some shots of them but they are too quick for me.

I did mange to get a sweet pic of a bumble bee - cobweb and all!

I do love all bugs really. They truly make a garden and seeing them warms the heart. They are mostly cabbage white types in the garden and they're babies are happy eating their way through my plants....

I would love to have my home full of loads of stunning butterflies along with subtle coloured moths but as that could end up being rather impractical I have instead made these butterfly inspired pieces to occupy your living space

  1. Lovely butterflies! I love drawing insects even though I have a phobia!

  2. I'm not sure I've ever seen so many butterflies as I have this summer - just everywhere and so many of them - it's been quite wonderful. And I've failed to get any decent photos of them at all! I do love your bumble bee one though :) And the butteryfly and lace porcelain bowl pictured here is just beautiful...
