made in britain
A unique handmade picture of cut paper butterflies created from Zola's classic novel, Therese Raquin.
A beautiful artwork created for the home or as a gift for lovers of text, words and literature.
Using the pages of books that have been damaged or unloved I have created a number of stitched butterfly books and single golden butterflies faced in gold leaf.
The background and sides of the artwork are created from the manipulated text of the book which flows up the inside of the box frame. The external frame has been covered with the pages of the book and has a bold gold leaf streak running across it.
Handmade with paper, wood, gold leaf and glass
