BLUE BUTTERFLY SCULPTURE or MOBILE
Andrew Logan is a British sculptural artist who often features flora and fauna within his sculpture work. This dazzling blue butterfly sculpture is created using Andrew Logan’s signature technique of mosaic mirror inlaid into resin. The sculpture has been created a two-sided piece, to sit as an ornament or it can be suspended by a piece of thread attached to the wing to produce a mobile or window decoration.
The top side of this shimmering butterfly is created using four different colours of mirror glass in gold, turquoise, black and royal blue hues. The mirror fragments are set into dark resin and the edges are embellished with turquoise, black, silver and lilac glitter and gold leaf paint. The head of the butterfly is formed by a polished, blue, speckled bead and the antennae are gold wires with a small ball of glitter-encrusted resin at the tips.
The underside of the butterfly is even more impressive with two large, oval-shaped, facetted blue crystals surrounded by textured, gold, rod-like glass crystals and more pieces of glass in black, turquoise and royal blue colours. Andrew Logan has etched his signature onto two pieces of glass and the date this butterfly was created, 2016. The head is a clear, polished, amber glass bead and the body is made with three fragments of gold mirror. Again the design elements are laid over dark resin encrusted with gold, silver, turquoise and lilac glitter.
Andrew Logan is a sculptural artist of international stature, yet someone who delights in creating art wherever he finds inspiration. This fine example of Andrew Logan’s work of art would make a vibrant addition to your home.
The butterfly sculpture has a width across the wings of approximately 12.5 cm and a length of 15 cm, from the top of the antennae to the bottom of the wing. The antennae measure around 6 cm long and the butterfly body is 8 cm. The butterfly weighs 168 g and can be suspended by a piece of invisible thread embedded within resin a tip of the wing.
