Words with Wings
Paper artist Karl Johnson learned his craft from his father. Now, he's applying his skills to heirloom-quality keepsake art that can have a special place in your family. Each of Karl's handcrafted three-dimensional butterflies is personalized to capture names, an important date, or another meaningful message. Available in four colors (including rainbow, if you can't land on just one), the intricately detailed wings cast a shadow on the mat below, creating the illusion that the little bug might take flight at any minute. (But don't worry, the sturdy plexiglass cover and wooden frame keep it precisely in place.) Handmade in California.
