These luna moths have been handmade and carved from porcelain clay. After the glaze firing, they were coloured with precious metal lustres in gold, copper, platinum and lilac.
It was as much of a challenge for me as the rest of the team, as I hardly ever use my own components in my designs, but these moths are one of my favourite things to create so I had fun working out what to do with one!
As well as sending moths to members of the AJE team, there were two guest designers chosen to join us in the challenge.
I hope you'll come along and see what we've all created!
