"Cornelli Lace" is a one of a kind flutter-bye sculpted from a recycled European beverage can.
I treated the aluminum to bring out its stunning iridescence and then hammered and embossed it with this intricate pattern. Then I precision cut out a life-sized Amazonian Baeotus Baeotus, in all its imperfect glory. I placed Swarovski crystals for accent and mounted it in a crackle-painted vintage gilt frame.
It is mounted in a vintage gilt frame that has been painted and distressed.
