Botanical artwork made entirely of preserved flowers, leaves, goldleaf, and butterfly wings on an incredible vintage golden oval frame.
One of a kind! approx. 11" in. tall, 9"in. wide.
All materials on this piece are :
- Ethically sourced
- Hand-picked and preserved
- Sealed to protect against weathering, aging, and color fade.
This piece honors the liminal space between winter and spring. The days begin to lengthen, the creatures begin to emerge from their slumber, and flowers begin to blossom. An energy of regeneration and freshness permeates. But there is still an element of darkness on the cold and rainy days that feels reminiscent of the winter that just passed. May this piece carry this very particular feeling of early spring. May it serve as encouragement to find presence and connection with the cycles happening around and within you, and to find joy in your expression in the world.
This vintage frame was hand-selected, taken apart, and re-purposed by me. All plants and wings are glued directly onto black cardstock and then covered with glass for protection and shine!
This piece contains multiple fern varieties, german statice flower, violet pansy, eucalyptus, goldleaf, and the wings of a Philippine's Wanderer butterfly (Pareronia tritaea).
This butterfly was purchased from a sustainable butterfly sanctuary. These beautiful creatures were collected after passing away naturally, and are now honored and cherished forever.

~Each piece that I make is created in an intentional, devotional space. I sit with the plants and create whatever my inner vision directs me to. This is my sacred practice, and it is suffused with magic and love!~
-Not for outdoor placement, keep indoors to avoid water damage.-
Best to keep away from direct sunlight, as the plants will fade over time if placed in a window! The fading of plants is natural and does not take away from their beauty, but rather reminds us of the constant change in life. If you are okay with this, then a window is fine. But keep in mind--the colors will stay forever if kept away from direct strong light.
