Big 'Green' Dragonfly

I have recently finished this big dragonfly commission to be displayed outside. These dragonflies lend themself well as garden art, because they are made from stainless steel. They are also versitile as they can be displayed on a wall or made to stand/rest (for example on a stainless steel rod beside a pond). Like all my work I specialise in using recycled stainless steel. In this case I have used spoons in the tail, a ladel for the body, cutlery handle for the nose, and an assortment of rods I salvage from draining boards, oven racks ect. The wings are made from some special stainless steel that I have baught especially for it's striking iridescent colour and weatherproof. It mimics the same colour found in nature on insects bodies and peacocks feathers.

I currently have these to see in: Salcombe at Gallery 5 and South Sands Hotel; RHS Rosemoor, North Devon; and here in my own collection.
