Jane Price – Framed Handmade Silk Butterflies


The six British butterflies are to scale. They are made by felting silk fibres to resemble the fragility of wings, then supporting the insect’s placement in boxframes with wire armatures and machine embroidery to emphasize their colour and diversity. The box suggests the notion of collecting as frequently the presentation boxes were once used for this purpose.
