Texture junkies, this post is for you. Current commission progress photos from these desert dreams table top mosaics I’m in the middle of for what promises to be one of the best collaborations I’ve worked on thus far. These mixed wood stains and wash techniques really celebrate all of the delicious patterns in the grain. Whether it be for form or function I’m always excited to help you ALTER YOUR SPACE. #woodworking #woodmosaic #sustainableart #homedecor #localart
This custom pendant duo was such a fun creative collaboration. The iridescent greens that shimmer throughout this piece are absolutely stunning sealed in Copper. Specimens include Chinese Papilio Maackii, Indonesian flower beetle, and sour apple aura quartz.

Thank you, Albuquerque! We had the best time with you all at the epic @odditiesandcuriositiesexpo last weekend and made some of the most incredible memories bringing the Captured Flight Collection back to where it began in 1974. The southwest treated us so well and we can’t wait to do it again. Until then, we’ll be slinging creepy beauties like these Hex Box Curios again in San Diego, March 9th. See you So Cal kids there! #sustainableart #capturedflight #butterflytaxidermy #butterflyart #southwest #albuquerque
Happy Anniversary to our Captured Flight dome arrangements! They have been so well received since their debut this time last year.
In celebration of the occasion here are a few gorgeous pieces we sold this past weekend at the @odditiesandcuriositiesexpo in Albuquerque. Thanks to such a successful show we are sold out of all domes at the moment, but that means new exciting creations will be coming out of the studio in the coming weeks. I’m so excited to expand on the Captured Flight + Past Lives domes featuring foraged and found animal bone in some of these new pieces with some beautiful butterfly, beetle, and crystal specimens . Can’t wait to get to get started creating some new strange and beautiful work. #capturedflight #decayedbrocade #butterflytaxidermy #rocksandminerals #butterflyart #domeart #sustainableart #oddities
Mixed media assembly. Sum of all arts. Custom piece with dropped feather specimens, aura quartz, and Ice Morpho Grande Captured Flight pendant.

This weekend will be our first oddities fair with @odditiesandcuriositiesexpo and we’re so excited to bring Decayed Brocade art back to where it began. We’ll be slingin’ bugs, bones, and butterflies all day Saturday in Albuquerque, NM.
This sustainably sourced and cruelty free PAST LIVES CAPTURED FLIGHT dome arrangement featuring quail skull, amethyst, Sallya Cronus, and Blue Echo will be there in all its beautiful lavender and orange glory.

Last holiday orders are getting packed up to go out. It’s been such an incredible year sharing the art and philosophy behind Decayed Brocade with so many. I am humbled to find so many others want to share it and celebrate the art of nature with their loved ones as well. As we near the Winter Solstice, which is a celebration of nature’s gifts to us, I would like to thank you all for supporting sustainable art and small business and remind you that without you none of this is possible. Yule Tidings to you and yours!
Folks couldn’t get enough of our Hex Curio boxes this past weekend. We have just a few remaining as seen in the detail photos here. Perfect for gift giving! Medi sizes priced at $48 and Grande at $58.

I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for such a spectacular experience vending with @uniquemarkets for their holiday event this weekend. I got to make some truly amazing contacts, share space with above talented makers, and continue to share my love of all things lovely, nerdy, and creepy. Thank you for all who came out, for those who listened to our story, to those that sent “likes” of support, for those who brought home a piece of their own or for a loved one. You all are what makes this possible and worth while. Please know you have my deepest appreciation. Our next event will be the Oddities & Curiosities Expo January 19th in Albuquerque, NM. We’ll be bringing the booth to where the Captured Flight story began, where my Grandparents live. It promises to be a more than memorable show for us. Hope to see you there!

Autumnal Spirit - This Tall Dome arrangement of primarily domestic assorted species butterfly on driftwood features one of the most exquisite pieces of Arkansas quartz I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. That Western European “Map Butterfly” at the top is really marvelous with its distinct black and white latitude and longer it’s linear pattern. A beautiful balance next of light earthy colors makes this a perfect compliment to any mid-century modern decor. Come on down to the Unique Holiday Market event at the California Mart Building in Downtown LA tomorrow from 10 to 5 and bring this beauty home!

What an incredible first day at the Unique Holiday Market downtown.
We got to meet so many awesome folks, and talented vendors, share and hear butterfly stories, and send people home with some really meaningful and unique gifts from our Captured Flight Collection.
The Unique team has really outdone themselves with such a beautifully curated event. Rarely have I ever seen such an eclectic array of great hand made works by artists in one place. If you can make it here tomorrow it is not to be missed.
We are so grateful for the love and support we’ve received and we look forward to another amazing day tomorrow at booth 137. #uniquemarkets #butterlyart #handmadeinla #butterflytaxidermy #madelocal #uniquegifts
