The Saved Butterfly

Inspired by the work done my the National Trust to save and conserve so much of the wildlife in the UK, I created three automata collection boxes all containing information for different causes.


The Bee Protector, The Tree Protector and The Saved Butterfly.


The three pieces were exhibited as part of an exhibition at Federation House in early 2014.

The National Trust Project

The piece was in honour of the national trusts work of saving the large blue butterfly from extinction.


When a coin is added and the button is pressed the Butterflies flutter their wings.


Half way through making this piece the Large Blue Butterfly was brought back from the edge of extinction by the work done by the National Trust. The money raised goes to the National Trust to fund their work overall.


I re-exhibited this piece at an exhibition in early 2015 to continue collection donations for the National Trust.

The piece was dedicated to collecting money to feed the bees over the winter.


When a coin is added and the button is pressed the flower slowly opens to reveal a bee resting inside.


The money raised goes to the National Trust to buy sugar for the bee's to eat during the winter.

The Bee Protector

​​Name and Colour

The piece was to raise money to prevent ash dieback and save birds homes all over the UK.


When a coin is added and the button is pressed the Bird leans forward and bows in thanks for the donation given, then stands back up straight and raises his wing.


The money raised goes to the National Trust to fund work that helps t prevent ash dieback.
