Just made this butterfly wing orb and caliper. Boy this was a lot of damn work and it’s not perfect but it’s a good prototype. The glass orb contains a blue morpho butterfly wing and a handful of pink sapphires. I created the caliper by welding two mantle clock frames together, used some filigree to cover the inside and outside of the circle, then added some nuts, screws and cork. I mounted it onto an anniversary clock’s brass base and finished with a crystal. Not bad for staying up until 8am with no sleep. Well I’m up again and it’s back to work I go! See my butterfly wing orb this week at the San Diego Comic Con in booth 1633 in small press right across from heavy metal magazine. #averoseart #oddities #curiosities #oddity #butterfly #butterflylove #morphobutterfly #butterflywing #butterflywingorb #fantasyart #sacredtreasure #fairywod #fae #steampunkart #steampunk #steampunksculpture #fantasysculpture #odditysculpture #sculpture #magic #fairytale
