“She exuded class” the family told me. Between class and the desire to represent the butterfly release on the stone we knew they had to work together. Keeping the budget in mind, we chose to go vertical to save money on the length of the base and allow the family to purchase Missouri Red. Blowing back the steeled side enough to have the butterflies all raised up helped to make the rose feel more sculpted than just shape carved. The simple swoop of the polish line followed the rose stem. The flowing nature is what draws your attention over the pitched sides. The intent was that this stone would look like the cards she would have sent you in the mail as a get well soon card.
