Grab it while it’s hot! A great gift for gardeners that’s practical and beautiful.
This pretty ring of butterflies cleverly turns garden canes into a wigwam for climbing plants, and the finishing touch is a single butterfly topper, for the uppermost cane.
Simple poke your canes into the ground in a circle, then place the ring over the top and push each cane into its respective slot. Simples! 🦋
Each butterfly is lovingly hand-made using stainless-steel and bronze wire, meaning they are perfectly happy outdoors all year round with no rusting. The stainless-steel stays shiny and the bronze wire mellows to a ‘bronze statue’ sort of colour.
Also available is a set of 4 more beautiful butterfly cane toppers to protect your eyes whilst you’re rummaging in the borders.(Please see my other listings).
Hi I’m Gill and I have a love of nature and a need to create. I originally honed my wire skills over many years making jewellery and tiaras, but I had a yearning to make larger more expressive pieces, that importantly had a life of their own.
I work in my Sussex based studio, using mainly stainless steel wire straight from the roll and this means that my sculptures are suitable for both indoors and out. With the outdoor pieces in particular I like to make larger, life-sized pieces and this led to my learning to weld in order to create a support framework. A bit of a change from my tiara days!
I take each sculpture through a creative process, which inevitably leads to a stage where I’m unhappy with my progress. Fortunately, this is usually closely followed by a breakthrough, when a spark of life takes hold of the piece, and a new creature is born!
As well as the pieces you see here in my shop, I also take on commission work and I’d be happy to discuss your requirements. You can email me directly at [email protected]
