I created a vintage entomology box of Yorkshire butterflies especially for the show, which I'm excited to say has already found a new home.
The exhibition runs until August 18th. Heart Gallery http://heartgallery.co.uk/

Any bespoke piece starts with a conversation about the intended recipient, do they have a favourite butterfly or is this to be location based ? I then start to research species and their specific habitats. Some customers want the butterflies to have this level of accuracy, others just love a particular butterfly.
There are lots of discussions at this stage, I may send you photos or sketches of ideas to choose from. With location specific commissions, where I mount butterflies on their map locations, I may need your postcode to find the appropriate vintage Ordnance Survey map.
