Cinnabar/ Jasmine Moth Decoration
Hang this beautiful designer ornament in your window, from a plant or branch or to create a focal point in your home. This glazed decoration is double-sided and features the Cinnabar Moth and the Small Magpie; taken from my original paintings (also available to buy). The scale and preciousness of the ceramic conveys the jewel-like moths in all their modest beauty.
The Cinnabar Moth: is nocturnal but may be active during the day if disturbed. Their black and yellow stripy caterpillars feed on ragwort. The bright colours indicate they are distasteful as a warning to predators.
Jasmine Moth: this gorgeous translucent, mother-of-pearl moth is a large micro-moth. It's an migrant from Southern Europe, which means despite its delicate appearance it flies across channel. It's like a precious fragment of lace although the larvae are considered a pest of olive fields where they feed.
I love pattern and embellishment and have extended a lace-like design around each moth, echoing their colours and shapes. I added touches of gold to accentuate the feeling of their preciousness.

Moth numbers are in decline. One report concludes that the number are down approximately 28% since 1968. This is cause for concern because moths are an indicator species and an important part of the ecosystem, telling us about the health of the environment. Moths are prevalent in a vast number of different habitats and are extremely sensitive to changes. The CRT monitors the numbers and ranges of moths on their properties in order to identify changes to nature such as new farming practices, air pollution and climate change.
