Pedro Quintana has created a swarm of butterflies that reminds us of the Monarch Butterfly Preserve in Mexico with butterfiles everywhere.
After sanding and burnishing the pot, he painted the red-winged butterflies with a brownish slip on the body and outer edges of the wings. He then carved around each butterfly so they actually stand out a tiny bit, The final touch before firing was to etch the butterflies and all of the carved out background.
I can't even imagine how long this took to make!
