A truely beautiful stag beetle pair, shining with luscious glazes, mounted in a modern. This pair were made in the Covid-19 U.K lockdown. In this time many people experienced highly vivid and surreal dreams. This psychedelic pallette is inspired by the spectacular dreams I was having at the time.
The piece is inspired by the antiquarian practice of Entomology collection. This contemporary twist on the practice is entirely cruelty free, as all specimens are handmade from clay. The framed specimens look very striking on a wall or displayed on a shelf. Each piece is signed and dated. The frame can be wall mounted with a screw or picture hook. It also has an arm, so can stand as a photo frame would.
