Pyrops candelaria: Clara

Clara1Clara represents a species of plant hopper that lives in southeast Asia. They sometimes called lantern flies, although they don’t emit light. They feed on plant sap, using their long, slender proboscis to pierce tree bark. Collectors love this insect, due to its beautiful coloration.

Clara is among eighteen of my latest found object assemblages, which will be on display and (most) for sale at the Oliver Center for the Arts July 28 – September 8, 2017 as part of a group exhibition, “Bugs, Birds and Beasts.”

Assemblage: antique oil cans, cheese grater, farm tool, vintage recycled jewelry and buttons, antique eyeglass temples, wire, fasteners, silk.

Dimensions: 14” x 8” x 15”

$425
