Product Description

An enchanting collection of multi-coloured butterflies is captured for ever on this stunning hand-painted plaque. After the plaque has been cast in fine bone china and carefully glazed, the artist begins work, building up the background and the image step by step using a carefully selected palette of ceramic colours.

Capturing the delicate beauty of something as ephemeral as a butterfly is something to which only the most talented ceramic artists can aspire. An essential part of the beauty of a butterfly is the way that light passes through and plays upon the creature’s gossamer wings, so that the impression when a butterfly flits into your path is a combination of lightness, movement and flashes of colour.

In order to convey the same effect the artist uses a variety of colours which, when combined with the fine glaze of the plaque, will both capture and reflect the light. To enhance the effects still further a range of specialist lustres is used. The end result is truly breath-taking, the colouring of the butterflies’ wings so delicate and subtle that you could almost believe you saw them flutter. Yet, unlike the sadly short-lived butterflies themselves, the colours of these ceramic butterflies will never fade.

Each plaque is finished with a hand-made wooden frame carefully chosen to set off the artwork, and comes in a hand-made silk-lined box. We can also add an inscription or message of your choice to the reverse of the plaque as a truly personal touch.
