Mary Katrantzou‎ vs bumble bee

1,875.00

This is a personal project of insects inspired by Fashion designers. This bumble bee is inspired by Mary Katrantzou’s ‘Resort 2018’ collection.

It was featured on Countryfile Spring special BBC1, air date April 28th.

This is the original paper model and completely unique - it is an early model so the internal structure is polystyrene and card and the texture is made up of thousands of hand cut paper tabs, meticulously hand glued freehand to create the pattern. This is the only model I have made in this way so is entirely unique.

Frame dimensions: depth 11cm, length 34cm, height 37cm.

The bespoke frame is made from Maple wood.

Creative process

Creating a bespoke paper sculpture for someone is an exciting adventure, I find the collaborative process very rewarding and creative. Initially we discuss the subject that is close to your heart, this can be anything from a bird or a shell to a particular flower or animal, there’s a lot of beauty out there in the world!

The next step is to decide the approach, whether you’d like to reproduce the sculpture true to life or to use an expression approach, this can be an exploration in colour and paper style, pattern and texture.

Shipping within the UK

Shipping is not included. The price can vary greatly depending on the distance. Due to the fragility of the box frames, collection or a designated driver is preferred. Other courier options are available.

Shipping Overseas

Shipping is not included. Special delivery of a box frame can be arranged subject to cost, various courier options are available.

Production time

As a rule the models take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. There can sometimes be a waiting list, in this event I can produce a bespoke card which can be used as a gift.

Care instructions

It is very important to keep the artwork out of direct sunlight such as near a window, this will avoid colour fading.

Avoid moist environments, such as bathrooms damp conservatories etc.

If the work is put into storage I recommend putting silica sachets in the box to absorb any moisture.
