Artist / Maker: Fiona Mazza

An original and totally unique sculptural vessel created by joining monarch butterfly wing shapes. The seemingly fragile nature of the wings are contrasted by the use of a nut and bolt motif that appears to hold the construction together. The whole structure is made from ceramic and actually has no metal parts.

“Recently experiments into electric kiln fired work, has produced a new body of work on the environmental impact on the monarch butterfly, recreating clusters of this beautiful insect by stacking ceramic wings. I enjoy the challenge of designing and making individual pieces, using many techniques, this allows me to explore clay in many areas.
