Dragonfly


Upcycled Dragonfly

A couple few weeks ago I was asked to create a dragonfly with a 50cm wingspan. So, here it is. This is the third one I have made with iridescent wings. I have created the colour using the naturally occuring colours in the metal. I like to use stainless steel so the artwork can be appreciated outside as well as inside. This is a wall hung piece, with a screw sized hole located on its underside. The overall dimensions are roughly 50cm2. This could also be made as a standalone on a stem, which could be placed in, or beside a pond.

Silver Squirrel

The Silver Squirrel, this is made from spoons, forks and kitchen utensils. It is currently for sale at Gallery 5 in Salcombe. This is an indoor piece. It can also be made to order for the outdoors too, as I can make it only using stainless steel parts. This means it can also be cleaned in the dishwasher too.

Dragonfly

This dragonfly started out as a request, when I asked a lady at a village market what she likes. That was a just over a year ago, and the design has come on a bit in that time. I now make them to be hung outside too. To make these dragonflies I use a variety of materials that I have salvaged from St. Luke's Charity Shop. Some examples: cutlery handles, teaspoons, ball-bearings from CD racks, metal draining boards. I don't have a pond where I live, so don't see dragonflies in my garden. Fortunately however, @joaomsbento on Instagram/Portugal let me use his photos. He has an extensive collection of insect photos.

Dimensions: aprox. 18cm width
Price: £50-£100
Type: Wall Mounted
Can be made for inside and outside.

The Rusty Red Squirrel

The photograph I used for this artwork is with kind permission of @freck66. I believe it was taken in Scotland.

I liked this pose, because of the attention the squirrel is giving the viewer. This work is part of a series I have now made of 'Rusty Red Squirrels'. This is the first 'wall art' squirrel. I have used lots of interesting miscelleneous items collected from St. Luke's Charity Shop. I like the rusty squirrels, because it adds variety to my portfolio. I think the variety of items adds lots of colour, texture and curiosity.

'The Grater Gecko'

I thank @aliciairi on Instagram for the use of her gecko photo that she took in Portugal or Spain. I chose the gecko because it naturally lends itself to be climbing on someones wall as a piece of wall art.
