As caddis fly larvae collect material from the bottom of the stream in which they live to construct their protective outer casing, I decided to place some of my caddis in an environment which would reflect their growth and form.

The materials are diverse, as shown by the titles on the slide show, and they are all stitched  with hand-dyed silk thread onto various hand-made papers.

They are approximately 19 x 19 cm.
