Sarracenia flava var. ornata by Death-Pony7 Sarracenia flava var. ornata by Death-Pony7
Yellow pitcher plant done in steel and aluminum wire, stone and glass beads, and a wooden base. It's based on a population from Southern Virginia that only exists in one county now.

Look closely at the lip of the far right pitcher, there's a little wire and bead bee ready to fall in the leaf.

You're welcome. Awesome. I love tarantulas. The Theraphosa blondi is pretty cool. :)

She's a Lasiodora parahybana, so she has pink hairs! 3rd largest spider in the world, and much hardier than the blondis. I'm mainly doing this sculpture to prepare myself for the size my little baby will reach. It's shockingly large! Have you seen the new arboreal Ts from Brasil?

I would SO buy one of these if you ever decided to sell one.

Awesome! I'll be holding on to this one for a while. This one would be difficult to ship, since it's about 2 feet tall. I'll be making some smaller ones as soon as I can, like rubra and purpurea.

Oh I bet! It amazes me how much movement and detail you can get into your sculptures!

I don't even intend to do it, it just happens. It's funny because these things are definitely stationary.

Oh I can imagine. How do you store your sculptures by the way, I always wonder how everyone does it. My paintings and stuff are scattered amongst my husband's star trek and baseball stuff :)

I'm in a gallery where I keep most of them, but the other ones are hung on the walls of my place.

Thanks! I'm surprised I could get it to stay upright. It's so top heavy!
