Butterfly Clamshell Platter by Alisa Nielsen, Spirit Wolf Design
My designs are generally based on travel (physical or mental) and experiences.
My Nisga’a Butterfly for instance, seemed to be the only one of its nature and colour and it followed me through the Nisga’a lands for two days. I thought it
odd as I was mostly driving. Every time I tried to take its picture, it would somehow take flight and move quicker than I!
I discussed this with my bed and breakfast hosts and they told me – he’s speaking to you – you need to design him. And then, after visiting the falls, the butterfly was flying about again and I told it, well then, stop so I can take your picture! And it did… landed right at my feet on the pavement and waited! And so I designed my butterfly.
