Caddis Larvae - Dark is a collection of caddis or houses, made by hypothetical caddis
fly larvae. They collect materials from the floor of the stream in which they live
to make their caddis, so for me, with my love of natural materials, they were an
ideal insect species to have fun with.
The larvae are made from painted paper pulp, with beads for eyes and paper-coated
wire for legs (see the close-up).
50 x 40 cm, stitched onto painted hand-made Mexican paper.
