The sparkling stag beetle with butterfly wings is Anna's favourite beetle. It's been her favourite since the beginning, back in 2012 when Anna created 10,000 ceramic insects for Nottingham Castle. This ceramic insect is hand moulded, glazed to 1100°C and finished with either gold or platinum lustres. The intricate making process, combined with the magic of the kiln firing means that no two beetles will ever be alike. The stag beetles have a small hanging hook on the back to mount your insect on the wall and create your own swarm.
