This butterfly-esque piece is comprised of many interesting elements. The wings are vintage brass drawer pulls adorned with beads and emu feathers. The body is a rusty drill bit. The butterfly is perched on an old wind up clock mechanism that still works. The coolest thing about this piece is that when you wind up the clock, the motion it produces causes the feathers to move ever so slightly, giving it a feeling of being alive. This piece was on exhibit at the 2017 Humor and Whimsy show at Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend.
