Butterfly Man

These are well used butterfly bowls from my collection. I love the chips in these bowls, they remind me that I make pots to be used. these chips represent breakfasts, dinners, salsa's, soups and porridges.

All the butterflies on my pots are real and drawn from a range of Lepidoptera encyclopedia I have collected over the years. I have always thought that one day some-one would come into the studio and recognize this. My lovely friend BB brought an Englishman by one day and just as he was leaving he looked up at a dusty old specimen I had hanging around on one of the shelves and said "That's a Meadow Argus!" So it was, his father was a botanist who traveled with his family to a Greek island to study butterflies.
