These and other images of butterflies are painted on clear or coloured mouth-blown glass, kiln-fired to fuse the pigment permanently into the glass. They are just an inch or two across and are available on rectangular or diamond shaped quarries. The quarries can be supplied plain or framed in lead came as single decorative hangings or made up into leaded lights for windows. The materials and techniques employed are similar to those available to the medieval glass artists and if cared for, these images could last centuries into the future. As well as providing intimate, fascinating and unusual decoration for our buildings today, they are also a symbol of hope for the future, standing in opposition to the throw-away scociety, a chance to leave small treasures for future generations.
