Sky House series: Chrysalis (redux)


 

 

 

 

A while back I reapproached the base on Chrysalis, a piece I made in Bali in 2011 as part of the Sky House series. The base had been in paper on a copper wire armature, but reworking it in wire cloth with Madrona branch legs seemed a lovelier fit.

Chrysalis comprises the various stages of a butterfly's life: It's the caterpillar walking, the pupa with the flames of transformation, and the butterfly's wings emerging. 

About 27" long, 18" high.
